Very noob question, Is there any proven way to buy bitcoins directly online? Like with a credit card for example.

None without their own unique risks.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

So if I'm looking to get a quick 100 bitcoins or so, what would you suggest?

If you have a Scandinavian credit card:
 - http://www.BitcoinNordic.com

This site apparently offers PayPal as a payment method.  They are new though so keep that in mind (check for history here on the forum):

 - http://www.quickbitcoins.net

Physical Bitcoin, paid for with PayPal [Update: credit card, not PayPal P2P]:
 - http://memorydealers.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=bitcoin

You might be able to buy a small amount this way, or using your mobile:
 - http://www.blockchain.info/wallet




With VirWoX you can buy SLL using PayPal, then trade SLL for BTC:
 - http://www.VirWoX.com

The reason there are so few options with PayPal as payment is that PayPal expressly prohibits a merchant to use PayPal for the sale of Bitcoins.  Additionally, because the payment can be charged back easily, merchants that have some angle must charge a higher fee to do so.

I did some research and bitInstant may be my best option. I'm trying to stay away from Paypal for obvious reasons, not worth the risk.

Thanks guys.

Quote from: memorydealers.com
PayPal will not be accepted as a payment option for Casascius Bitcoins

Will pretend to do unverifiable things (while actually eating an enchilada-style burrito) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4

I used bitinstant last week.  I have nothing but praise for the service.  I gave them cash and the only ID might be my picture on a camera someplace.  Fast and convienient...the way life should be.
