Paypal for use in SL requires verification of your identity and residential address, Paypal do this by linking with ones bank account, LL have to do this by LAW. I think you can use third party exchanges. Prepaid credit cards are no longer accepted for the same reason.

BTW: This is not LL, it is international LAW.

Yes, you can.  Let me copy the full description from Linden Lab for you....

To use your PayPal account with Linden Lab, it must be verified and be capable of making instant transfers.

Linden Lab does not accept e-check (bank account) payments through PayPal because they cannot be processed quickly enough to match the instant delivery of virtual goods and services.  Therefore, we require that you have a credit card on file with PayPal as a backup payment source, OR that you pay with your PayPal balance in USD. Without a sufficient USD balance in your PayPal account, you will not be able to use it with only a bank account.

Notice the part that I highlighted in red.  If you have your PayPal account verified through your bank instead of a credit card, you have you keep enough money in the PayPal account to pay for your SL purchases. You have to maintain that balance yourself. Linden Lab will not ask PayPal to withdraw money from your bank account, because PayPal cannot do it fast enough to satisfy Linden Lab's accounting system.  Remember, you are not dealing with eBay or Amazon.com, which have much more sophisticated accounting systems.

If you don't want to buy L$ through the LindeX, you can always try and find one of the Authorized Resellers who will accept your payment method.  They are taking a slightly greater risk than LL does, so they will charge you a slightly higher exchange rate, but it may be the right option for you.

I a bit confused here, who is "he". If you buying thru LL what you have is ok. If you buying from a third party i do not know, but i never give my card details to anyone. I had a year of stress with AOL, still deducting fund nine months after the contract ended and the Bank saying they could do nothing as i had authorized the deductions.

ADDED: Do have a debit card?
