    I need to withdraw some money but I can't have it mailed to me because they can only send it to my physical address and USPS does not deliver to my physical address (I live outside city limits so I have a PO Box).

    I'm always hesitant about typing my bank info anywhere on the Internet. Should I just go and open another bank account that I would use only for internet transactions? It's such a hassle though to do this because the bank is always closed by the time I get off work. Thanks for any input.

    They say it is safe. I've used a couple of accounts without incident. Some people don't even want to take a relatively low risk, so the choice is yours.

    Paypal is a very big and reliable source, you have nothing to worry about giving them your bank account info (I've used it many times).

    As long as your computer has not been hacked, and someone can see what you see and type, you should be fine ;)
