I went ahead and donated, AX sent me a text alert with the main donation being billed as "EMERGING MARKET TRANSACTIONS" and the "tip" being billed as  " WPY WEPAY"  which is probably paypals %.   Casa Grande said his was billed the same way.  Seems a bit confusing but paypal is targeting India and other emerging markets.    Anyone else get this result?  This was as of 7/11-7/12.

OK I figured it out,  it's the payment processor for my AX Card, also known as First USA Paymentech located in Salem NH.   So it's legit.

Just wow. I've been absent from the forum for a while, and was shocked and saddened to hear of Richard's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jennifer, as well as a small donation for her future.
