  3. That's interesting, as I use paypal as seller on discogs and I already met a couple of lunatic buyers, I am going to cut the Paypal access to my bank account. Thanks! I am asking myself if is it the same with a credit card?

    According to scientists in this case contagion in Italy has no relationship with anti-sanitary situation that we have for sure but in this case is not relevant.
