Took about 2 weeks to get mine.

I would give them a ring if I were you.

I actually sent them an email before writing my post above. I got a reply this morning and they sent another one, free of charge.

I went through the same hassle. Shortly after I got my second order key, the first one arrived. Now I have 2.

Probably US Post that is too blame for the slow delivery, not Paypal.

All it means is that when the first one fails, I won't have to contact Paypal for them to send me a new one for free.

^^ Ditto... but $29.95??? That's insane/greedy!

Improving security for customers shouldn't be that expensive!

Are those fobs made by RSA? If they are, I wonder if those older keys should really be considered secure anymore?

Long live the console war! Buy 'em all! Just don't give Sony any of your Personal info!

Well if they aren't and PayPal isn't notifying their customers then they could have a legal nightmare on their hands.

My guess is they are still secure

PayPal have not supplied the actual Fobs for quite some time, all they supply now, AFAIK, are the Cards.

There is no reference to RSA, it has "InCard Technologies", NagraID" & "DisplayCard V1.4.1/OATH", on the rear.

Using a mobile phone to have a security code sent to you via a text message is free if you don't wish to spend the money on the card.
