Dave, your remark is interesting., I have used PayPal  since 2001 (approx) and it has been very useful fom me; however, I don't like it and would not recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately, PayPal seems to be the de facto standard way of payment for some online vendors. Regards, Salvador

I wouldn't worry about it.  I doubt if they would be suspicious or even 
care.  There are very few 'real people' who will interact with you at 
PayPal.  It's actually a very terribly managed company in my opinion.  
Be aware that if you make a friends & family payment by credit card the 
fee will apply.  Only payments funded from a bank account are free of 
the fees.
