I think when you use your credit card for registered with PayPal it will safe ,it means that they can verify you. With a verified account you have protection. However, you much keep your password safe, do not share your password to any body,also if you lost your money you can track who take your money in your report,if paypal take your money you can claim to them.

U can have acccount with any nationalizes bank...UTI, HDFC etc. They provide debit card at the opening of account itself, we don't need to ask for that.

Registering your credit card with paypal is completely safe. they use SSL Certificates meaning that the information (your credit card number) and other personal information is scrambled when it goes to your computer. it looks like 1011011001110011 When it goes from your computer to paypal's computer the only people that see the real number 3421-2034-2213-1234 Visa Is paypal Representatives kind of like a bank does. except there's no physical location for paypal that I know of other then e-bay's corporate office. The credit card number above is not real it's just an example so don't try and use it it probably won't work. Take care Jon

I have had Paypal for 5 years or more and they have my bank account and credit card numbers. They are very safe take good measures for their and your safety in dealing with money. As long as you have a good card then be assured that you can give them the information. Hope you can trust and move forward. It has been a terrific thing for me.

Like that this number have danger to get misused. Though we don't disclose PIN, many times we hear abuot scam regarding this. So, just for the sake of satisfaction....lol Thanks for reply.
