finally...

Mon Feb 13, 2006, 5:20 PM
I finally found a decent title for my comic book project: it shall be called "Clues". I'm really happy with it... Took me more than a year to find a decent title... phew!

And I'm opening commissions officially on the first of march, if, I receive the credit card I asked for today! yay! hey, does anyone know how a paypal account works? I have no clue...

And I might travel to New York in one month! for a week or so. I hope there will still be some snow! ^___^

Scam emails are basically like this:

"Dear PayPal user: It is time of the year for your PayPal account confirmation. Please click on the link below to sign in and confir,"

So what ppl do is sign in, and voila, they gave their account info away to someone. The emails look very proffessional, almost an exact replica of a PayPal email. So how do you tell the difference?

If you get an email from PayPal, they will say "Dear [insert real name here]". They will never say "Dear User", they will use your name. So if you remember that, you're golden.

And as for how much you have earned, you just log into your account (at paypal.com) and you get a complete balance and history of all incoming and outgoing payments. A pretty good system; I have used it monthly, if not daily, for the last 5 years without incident.

and if I understood well, to request money, I have to send an email with the amount that I'm asking for via paypal, and then the person confirms that email, therefore sending me the money in, is that it?
Anyway, thank you very much for the warning! that's really a good thing to know about! :hug:

yea, it mostly works through email. Don't worry, when you first set it up, they do a $.10 withdrawel to get you used to the system. As long as you can part with 10 cents lol.

Or do they give you 10 cents... I forget.

Not necessarily, you just need a credit card for back-up payment. (Let's say you pay for something and there isn't enough money in your account, it moves to the CC.) In short: A CC is needed for validation and as a back up source, but as long as you remain conscious of your funds, you won't have any problems.

please also remember that in scam emails they ask you to use a link in the e-mail to log in, never click on this link. Real Paypal emails never contain links and ask you to sign on in their main page [link].

Paypal itself has its own way of requesting money from your paypal account itself, you can then withdraw that to your chosen bank accout.. the links are titled accordingly (request funds, withdraw etc)....

this link gives you more info [link]
