This doesn't fit in another category...

Postby mnheadliner » Sun Jul 10, 2005 4:24 pm

...so I guess it goes here?

Anyways, one simple question.

I am setting up a money league this season and recruiting people from the cafe to play, people I only know through this website. I am trying to figure out a way for them to pay me without them having my address or me having to pay for a P.O. box, etc. Something online would be great. I have been a part of PayPal for a few years now, and that would be a great option, but over the past couple of years PayPal has really developed a bad reputation and I am going to close down my account there.

However, I want some way for people to pay me the league fees and some way for me to pay them league payouts without giving out my address, etc. because I am the comish and someone could get mad at me and turn into a Internet psycho!

Help. Any ideas? :-?

LOL....I know how it looks....but, without going into my past and how one of Murphy's Laws (If it can happen....it will happen) has continually impacted my life....I will say this. I have good reason for the paranoia. :-o

If you're hand-picking trusted people from the website, you shouldn't be worried about people coming to your house. I don't know of any option that suits your needs besides Paypal.

No, I don't work there I just thought this might work.

Google is coming out with something to rival PayPal - don't know when it will be up and running though, check out their site and see if there's details on its launch.
And as Hawkeye said to Frank Burns: "It's okay to be paranoid if people really are out to get you", lol!
