Re: Why I don’t use PayPal...

Read the article.

It's not PayPal that's lost the money It's a company they've bought out, reviewed their systems as part of the takeover process and identified they'd had a data leak at some point.

So if it weren't for PayPal, those customers might never have known they'd had their details exposed / stolen.
