Paypal and account skimming...

I know a number of my friends have had their bank accounts skimmed, usually for online gambling or other difficult-to-trace transactions. I have heard horror stories in the past about PayPal's security, but I'm considering getting a PayPal account. Just on a whimsy, I thought I'd run up a quick poll to see if there's any correlation between 'people who own a PayPal account', and 'people who've had their bank account skimmed'. I am not suggesting for a second that this is true, but it would go some way to allaying my fears.

Please note, if you've had a different account to the one that is associated with PayPal skimmed, can you please not fill in the poll and leave a comment instead? Ta.
