A good idea which sadly with time has been seriously denigrated. I am not going to complain about the fact that you pay ebay fees and then they state that you must use paypal in order to "extort" further fees, neither am I going to worry about the restrictions etc which they place on your account.

My main concern is their latest set of terms and conditions of service, which led to me cancelling my account. They state that your details will be passed to a multitude of credit referencing agencies (why - I am not borrowing money from them, I am actually paying money into them), but more importantly that they have the right to pass your details onto 3rd party advertising agencies (with the right to demurral).

Screw that - the web is invasive enough without paying paypal to pass my personal details onto random web enitities.

Seriously guys - if you are not selling on Ebay you don't need a paypal account - just use the guest option and don't get roped into their "3rd party advertisers" BS.
Seriously don't even waste your time - this is just another example of a government department setting up a point quango to divest themselves of any cost or responsibility for dealing with crime.

I report a case of fraud over a month ago, heard nothing since, and even on the site it states that most cases won't be investigated.

So in essence, waste your time filling out a report - it gets filed and forgotten and meanwhile the police and the government can state that they have a department to deal with fraud (they should actually say "file fraud reports"

OMFG - Update - the recommendation from Talk Talk following them losing all of your personal detail to random hackers (seriously, how bad is their security) is that your report any fraud to Action Org - bad enough you have been ripped off due to an incompetent ISP but you are also recommended to waste your time inputting the detail into a pointless government quanqo who are about as effective as sticking flowers under your nose to fight the Black Death in the middle ages were.
Seriously are you guys stupid. This is a site that claims to protect you from having your information spread around the internet - and also barracks you with emails about signing up for social network sites.

Why the flying f*** would you sign up for social network sites if you wanted your footprint removed from the internet.

PMSL laughing at the response to my review from "Brandon" the MYLIFE representative inviting me to get into contact - If I wanted to talk to weasels I would take a trip to my local zoo :-)

Clearly a scam - it appears that I have Margaret from Manchester searching for me :-) I have never been to Manchester and don't know anyone called Margaret, I never realised I was that famous :-)
