the danger on logging in your cc account thru email is that you may get diverted to a phishing site which are made to those unsuspecting people to login in their account but in fact they are giving away their info. it is a must that people should check and authenticate who the sender really is by checking the email add source if it's a spoof address made to appear something authentic, and to check the email website link if it's actually a real site and not a phishing site.
I learned that the hard way with my original Paypal account. Before I knew it, I was buying access (apparently) to all kinds of Porn sites. It got straightened out in the end but the best advice anyone can follow, about logging in from an Email, is Just Don't Do It. Type in the URL (or use a bookmark), Make sure you are At the site and you see the little Lock ICON at the bottom of the screen. Secured sites will always start with an HTTPS. Most browsers will warn if you are about to move From the secured site.

That happened when Paypal would Immediately withdraw funds from a bank account and the bank would comply. Now it takes several hours for the transaction to come through (at least it does at my bank). I've set up a dedicated bank account for online spending and Only that one is used where a cash transaction is concerned. Money is NOT deposited into it until I make a purchase. The account also has overdraft block on it. Between all of that, and the ability to have my CC provider tell PP to go pound sand, I feel as secure as I can be with it in this day and age.
