Default Paypal asking me to "Confirm your debit or credit card"

Hi all. I just received this message from PP for me to confirm my debit card. It's where they make a small charge to it and then want to do a refund once confirmed. It's on my stealth PP but of course using my own/real debit card and banking info.

I know I have read about this here on the forum before but can't find the thread(s) now that I need them.

What do you guys think? Something I HAVE to do? Or worry about?

PP acct is already verified, in good standing, already sent utility bill and supplier invoice.

Here is actual wording from email:


"You linked your debit or credit card to your PayPal account on . To make sure the card is yours, we made a small charge to it that you'll need to confirm (and we'll refund the money to your PayPal account when you're done).
The charge creates a unique 4-digit code on your card statement. If you don't see the charge right away, don't worry - sometimes it takes a few days to show up. If you can't check your card statement online, check your paper statement when it comes in the mail (this can take up to 30 days). You will find the charge from PayPal with a 4-digit code.
1. Check your card statement and look for a charge from "PayPal" with a 4-digit code next to it.
2. Log in to your PayPal account and click Confirm Credit Card.
3. Enter the 4-digit code to confirm the card
When that's done, you'll be able to pay safer online with your card through PayPal - without ever exposing your financial information to sellers.

Sincerely,
PayPal"

Confirm the card associated to PayPal with the e 4 digit number is pretty standard for all accounts even if I never had a US one. Nothing to worry if I correctly understood your question.

You should get the 4 digit code and confirm it. You went this far, why stop now?

Thanks for the advice ilcarletto. And thanks for chiming in dallis.

Dallis, I hope there's no sarcasm in that statement lol! "You went this far, why stop now?" Sounds like one of those lines Stephanie Tanner would have told DJ Tanner on Full House before something VERY bad happens .

But really, this sound ok and normal to do?

I guess my concern is somehow by this process that they would be able to see the details of my debit card (my real name and details) opposed to the details on my stealth PP (not real name obviously). What do you guys think?
