Years ago, my Amex card had this “one time use” CC numbers that I used with zero worries of on-line fraud. For some weird reason, they withdrew that service. I believe Discover and Citi now offer “virtual” credit card numbers (not sure if they work the same) that I have looking into. I might have to get a Citi/Discover CC for just this service.

As far as Paypal/ebay, I haven’t had any problems so far. Personally, I feel a lot more confident giving them my CC than my bank account number. In my experience, CC companies deal with fraud reports swiftly. If this virtual CC thing works out, I will just cancel my Paypal account altogether.
