OK - I know this is more ‘Finance’ section - but it’s a general warning.
I did have a PayPal a/c, registered to my french address - but which included a link to my UK bank a/c, which meant I could transfer money to my daughter for treats, surprises etc.
Worked fine - no problems - until last week when, and now kicking myself, I allowed my computer to update my FireFox browser to ‘super dooper faster etc blankety blank nonsense’ - with the result that I lost the cookies, and the log-in passwords for many of my webpages - including e-Bay and PayPal.
And guess what - you lose such passwords, you’re upgraded browser won’t have ‘kept’ your passwords.
If you are fortunate enough to still have an e-Bay a/c that is linked to your UK - and I stress UK bank a/c -
you WILL LOSE THAT LINK … because PayPal are now enforcing country specific rules - once it’s gone, it’s gone.
So do NOT update your browser if you have such a PayPal UK bank account link.
I did, I have lost it, - and I’m facing big grief and big trouble over that lost link.
So be VERY, very, very careful - don’t trust any ‘up-date’, anything, any more !!
