    I just found the donate link on here. I have been wanting to donate to the BOC for a while. Is the BOC a safe site to input credit card info on? not saying i don't trust the BOC staff, just making sure the site is secured from hackers, if anybody can give me some info i would greatly appreciate it!

    Tony you said it all. Yes, the link is secure. But beware of "Spoof Email" requesting your personal info.

    If you have a credit card you can set up a paypal account for free and donate that way also. I have been using paypal for more than a few years and never had a problem.

    no its not paypal that way , but if you go to paypal site and register
    you can then use it without worry of haveing to give your credit card numbers out over and over again.

    ive made over a hundred ebay purchases with paypal and several non ebay transaction without a hitch.

    like benji LAIDBCK111 said beware of dang emails requesting info for your paypal account
    some emails will say they are from paypal staeing your account is in jeaprody of being cancelled and asks you to resubmit your info
    or asks for your password DONT DO IT !!!!
    send any suspected email like that to spoof@paypal.com.
