RME is safe/ legit. right?

So I signed up for an RME account. I was a little hesitant, but since stores I have purchased from before are now taking it, I figured it was fine.

However, I just read this blog: http://thedramaofdiaperswappers.word...heft/#comments

And it kinda made me nervous. Anyone care to reassure me that no one is going to steal my identity because I have an RME account?

Re: RME is safe/ legit. right?

Sry, mama. My instincts say NO to RME. Like many mamas, I'm sitting back and watching. I'm not thrilled w/ the exhorbitant fees PP charges, but I'm even less secure in giving such personal info. to a company I know nothing about. Don't get me started on the 'free money' thing (of course, if the gov't can do it...)
I have a feeling RME isn't going to be around for long, so I'm neither offering nor accepting it for biz or pleasure. (I have no facts to back up my feeling--just an unsettled feeling from the min. I heard about it.)

Okay. So I just did some online research and came to the conclusion RME seems okay. Not trying to talk anyone else into trying it- I'm not qualified to make that recommendation, but if you google "revolutionary money exchange" you can get more info.

Here's the link to a usatoday article:

I'd still love to hear some reassurance, though.

I could've written that word for word.

It's tempting to sign up for that $25 and spend it, but something on my insides just won't let me. Something isn't right about it all.

Maybe some gals who have had RME from the beginning and have moved money into their account can come on here and say whether they have had problems or not. I haven't tried that yet. Anyone deposited RME money into their bank account, like you can do with paypal?

FDIC backs RME as well. PP asked for my soc # - it is for a cc account, but they got it none the less. I searched around on my bank site and found the same "we can sell your info" disclosure. I got money to sign up for my bank account and paypal - it is all the same thing. If you are uncomfortable then don't do it, but I believe it is totally safe.

Ditto on all that Heidisue said .

Yep, its fine. I signed up and have had no problems, no spam mail, no phone solicitors, etc. Lots of other mamas have too. The people who have had SSN problems are the exception, not the rule. I can see how people would get nervous when someone asks for your personal info, but with those names backing it, I really don't see how it could be a scam.
