I was surprised to find this story when looking at the BBC site:

"UK users of internet payment processing company Paypal risk losing their money because the company's insurance policy against fraud only applies to the United States. ..."

After all the UK experiences a lot of identity fraud in other areas too – the latest that came to light is number plate fraud.

In a country where ID cards are not compulsory it will be very difficult to get a reliable way to check who you are dealing with.

So why should insurance companies extent their cover to this part of the world when the risks are so much higher?
