I use a seperate e-mail account that I use ONLY for Paypal and e-Bay. (I think I have like 10 accounts that came with my cable internet service) This way, I know that any e-mail that I get from 'Paypal' or 'e-Bay' on any other e-mail account is a fraud. I also only set up my Paypal account to draw funds from my checking account. I had it set up to charge from my charge card, but I was getting reckless and buying too much. In my mind, my charge card was limitless. I am much more cautious and frugal when the money is coming out of my checking account, lol! I do have my charge card as a back up funding to my checking account, but so far, it has never come to the point where it was needed. That being said, I love Paypal!!! I wish it were a pay option for more services than it is right now. I'd use it for everything if I could!!!
