Almost everyone I know uses PayPal these days. I resisted for as long as I could (something about it made me feel uncomfortable), but finally gave in when a friend insisted I pay him some money I owed through PayPal. Now, apparently, there’s a bit of PayPal backlash going on. They’ve apparently set up some fraud checks that are causing lots of problems (especially for the receivers of money). They’re also facing problems, since they’ve basically become an unregulated bank.
