    Hi Jeff. I have been wanting to buy this book, but I was wondering if you offer any alternatives to paypal. I have two friends who had their identities stolen through paypal accounts, so I am paranoid about posting my info on there. Thanks!

    I don't have any alternatives for PP, unfortunately.

    Paypal is safe for the most part…I've done thousands of transactions with PP…never had a problem.

    People get their IDs stolen when they respond to fake e-mails asking for their PP password.

    I believe you can still buy the book and use your credit card if I'm not mistaken?

    e-mail me jeff@another71.com if you have any issues…

    Jeff, Sorry I have to disagree with your statement:

    “People get their IDs stolen when they respond to fake e-mails asking for their PP password”

    You couldn't (necessarily) be further from the truth. Yes, thats true in some cases. However, in my case, someone, somehow got all of my information name, dob, ssn, etc., used some phony e-mail and opened a PayPal account, started withdrawing funds from various bank accounts and I got stuck dealing with their collection agents for 3+ months for $5000 bucks. It gets better. The day after I get someone from law enforcement to listen, i call them to let them know, within 1 hour they send me an e-mail, saying its been resolved. Total costs (long distance calls, certified mail, copying etc.,) $450.00.

    I vowed never, ever, use PayPal as long as I live on this planet. However, I broke my vows and I did purchase your book using a pre-paid credit card that was about to expire, unfortunately it was under my name and not “Homer J. Simpson.” But no matter what, I will never, ever, ever again use PayPal again. The thing is, I'm passionate (and desperate) about passing this thing. : )

    Thanks for the website and the book. It is keeping me sort of sane.

    People can get all your information from anywhere actually. Amazon had someone take tons of customer information not so long ago, unfortuantely we were part of that fiasco. Cochlear Americas (huge conglomerate international company for cochlear implants for deaf people) also had information comprised and we had to all get new credit cards. People can break into Walmarts, Shopko, Target, etc anywhere and get people's credit card information. It has been done before. I'm sure people will do it again. I think PayPal just gets a bad rap.
