Just as a matter of interest, which mobile network are you on? Would a different network save you getting arm strain?

It's just not a good area for mobiles, Malc. Many networks just don't work here. Some years ago Orange & Vodaphone wanted to put a mast up but the local council vetoed it.
It's one of the reasons I won't spend money on a smart phone - no point :no:

I have zero mobile signal where I live. Fortunately my Samsung A40 with a BT Sim makes and receives calls via the wi-fi router. I have found it convenient. We are currently not on the Paypal scammers list, but one of my wifeís disposable emails attracts all sorts of junk mail. Finding that unsubscribing just encourages them, she hit on unsubscribing by entering the spam senderís address. This seems to calm them down for a while but I do not know why.
Unfortunately a lot of the spammers also spam the email address. I had one proporting to come from the University of Edinburgh. I know Iím knocking on a bit but I donít need what they were offering at a discount.

Personally if arm strain makes things as difficult as possible for these low life's to hack my accounts then I'm all for it!

Just by checking the senders mail address by hovering the pointer on it you can see if it's garbage or not and 100% of mine are.
As for using a card reader on my bank account I have to log in before even getting to use it so have all the faff to get through anyway.

I use PayPal quite regularly for ebay, online purchases etc. Never had any problems as such, but I am always on the look-out for scam emails. I've had a spate of these in the last few months and they typically start 'Account Restricted. Hello (then my yahoo address). Your PayPal account has been temporarily restricted'...and guess what, in the body of the email they want you to log into your PayPal account!!! No way am I doing that. I have officially been guided (by Paypal) to forward these straight to spoof@paypal.co.uk  Another one that crops up starts 'Your account has been suspended (Ref: xxxxxxx). Again, they want you to log in.

Not having a mobile as Chrism says above, Paypal give me a 4 digit number on screen then call my landline whereupon I enter the 4 digits on the phone keypad. No problem.

Indeed. It's just a pity that some of my banks don't think out of the box like that.
I didn't want to give them a mobile number because reception is flaky at best here. One did try sending the text to my landline but the text-to-voice system gabbled the number so fast that I couldn't get it written down correctly and was forced to give them a mobile number.
The others that require extra authentication gave me a card and card reader, which works fine.

I've no wish to give my landline number to paypal, in the same way I will not give Yahoo my mobile number as a backup in case I get locked out of my mail. I just don't trust them.


Totally agree I have this authorisation also with my banking. Either that I have to use a card reader to generate log in codes.

I generally find only new payees cause me to use a card reader. Once used they appear in my list of potential payees and the transaction is easy..
