    wonder how it shipped? If ups you can sign up for ups mychoice and it will give all scheduled deliveries to your address.

    not sure if usps and fedex do similar


    then you can set up a curb stomp




    assuming it is a local id theft thing

    really has nothing to do with Pay Pay, the fooker used the PP feature on ebay to pay with a regular debit card (mine)

    I don't mind PayPal too much. I really like the 6month 0% credit deal on all purchases.

    We had fraud on our card 3 times this past year...

    They actually committed the fraud through our AT&T account.

    They even walked into stores in Texas and bought new phones in person...

    One month cell phone bill was close to $20,000

    My wife calmly asked if I had been talking to a lot of carpet cleaners overseas....I had been, but using the Facebook calling feature....then she told be the bill....

    Went to AT&T pretty quick...AGAIN...

    Cancelled everything related around the card and the card....

    We haven't had issues now for a couple months

    Hey, wanna sell me that apple phone? My battery life sucks and I need a new one. I'd rather have a phone with a good story behind it.
