recently i have been using paypal a lot on ebay and travel websites and what not. Recently, I was scammed by a seller on ebay and am awaiting my refund. As a precaution for the community, I plan to give negative feedback to this ebay seller for doing the scam. However, this brought me to a question:
After I had paid for a product on ebay using paypal, the unscrupulous seller now has my full legal name + phone number + street address. This is great info to google me up or evenwalkup and knock atmy front door. This reduced my incentive to be vocal about nefarious scammers. Does paypal have a scheme to hide my name everytime I use it to pay for a good or service? I discovered paypal doesn't allow you to change your first and last name. Is there at least a scheme to mask some of your personal details?
In a world where scams are becoming easier to do, it seems weird, paypal easily gives out all my critical details to any person i decide to transact with.
