I'm familiar with paypal on a very very beginning level. I got in on it when they were starting out pretty much.....did a little this/that with them, so many years ago I forget why or what I bought, or how to even get into my acct. So that is my knowledge of it......basically you use it to buy/sell online.....that's about all I know. Katie came through with a date/time at the very last minute. Then added that she had to stop off at the drug store and pick up alex's inhaler. Ticked me as she should have already had that but as camp won't let him stay without it because it's a medication required for the asthma......I let it slide. Once she got a yes on that one.........she went to husband's fb page and told him she got a check from paypal and would he stop and let her cash it while they were taking alex to camp. Now I didn't see this post before I left this morning to go over to easy child's house or I'd have told him NOT to do it. I'm tired of we agree to take her somewhere and next thing we know there are 10 other places tagged on and it's an all day event. And the whole paypal thing threw up a major red flag for me. easy child spotted the post to her dad while I was over there and told me about it. Odd, but the whole family had the same reaction. What the he!! is she getting a check from paypal for? Now it could be for something perfectly innocent and legal. Not one of us believe this is the case. I lost it and snapped at husband when he said he took her to the only place in town that would supposedly cash it. (which is crud as Travis is paid via paypal all the time, Nichole's husband was too and could cash them anywhere) But to be fair, he didn't know not to.......and other than being irritated at her for adding on another stop he didn't think much about it. I suppose she could be selling some of the big ticket items she's been buying, but I doubt it. That would mean a 5 mile walk into the heart of downtown to ship it, unless she took a taxi. And I don't see her selling those big ticket items that M covets about all else. He'd take it to a pawn shop first....also that walk into the heart of town, with the hope of getting it back. M won't part with his computer, nor alex his......that playstation is meant to keep alex quiet, so that isn't going anywhere, the DSI or whatever it's called is meant to keep Kayla quiet.....so doubt it left......and that leaves nothing left to sell. I asked husband if he asked her why she was getting money from paypal. She told him she got it for selling her FrontierVille acct from FB with is totally BOGUS! Outright lie. You can't do that with fb and myspace games. People do it with the games that are there.......but their accts aren't linked to their fb or myspace pages. And please, no one is gonna BUY a frontierVille game.....phht. The games that sell are the super popular ones that people spend small fortunes on to build up. This does not describe either katie or M. So I know she's lying about what she sold. Nichole says that the Jo lady she got hooked up with that had her and one of her bff's cashing checks for her.........it was first done via paypal, then western union when people stopped cashing the paypal ones. Jo had taken out credit cards......was running a scam somehow online where she was getting cash from that credit card and having it sent to her, first paypal and then western union.....which is why when Nichole and bff went to the cops, she couldn't leave town fast enough. I have no clue how such a scam would work, or if there was some way katie and M could have found out about it and are trying it or what. I do know that they have horrible credit, but then so did Jo. I don't know enough about paypal to know what all they can use it for either. But I know I've got a lot of wise people here to help me think on this one. Maybe they did sell some of the big ticket items. But it would be far simpler to take them to the pawn shop than to ship them to someone and wait for a check in the mail. It's not how they work. So fellow warriors.........do YOU buy the FrontierVille source of cash?
