I am becoming quite worried about the $ conversion, $ everyday drops a little, are USA going down?

honestly I dont know nothing regarding value of the $ and exactly how it goes up or down.. but Europe is quite down, it was Greece than Ireland than Portugal, perhaps Spain soon..

is the $ going down and even more than the EUR?

It's a concern, every time the dollar weakens, I lose more money.  The exchange rate with sterling was a lot worse for me in 2006, I hope it isn't heading there again.  Currency fluctuations are really hard to predict, I read an expert predicting that the pound was going to go down against the dollar a few months ago and he was completely wrong.  I think the level of US debt could be a big problem but hopefully they will do something to get it under control.

There is no way the US can get their debt under control. It's just a matter of prolonging the big bang. It will come eventually...

I've read about 2014, I hope agencies will switch to EUR long before that or we'll all loose most of our money.

I'm sure they will find something more creative, such as delaying payments for days or even weeks and pay us when the rate is better for them, not for us!

I also kept my money on paypal for when the dollar would get stronger again. Unfortunately it only got weaker and weaker the last 6 months and I don't see it changing soon. Not liking the idea of alot of money on paypal I transferred it to my euro bank account. Wish it was possible to put the money on a dollar bank-account but paypal only accepts American dollar bank-accounts  :-\

I have a US bank account on a US bank (I'm in Canada). This allows me to get payed in US dollars and keep the money in that currency. I was lucky because a Canadian bank affiliated with the US bank set it up for me. Are there any banks in Europe with a presence in the US?

Leave your money on Moneybookers or on Paypal if US dollar is your account currency and wait for a better time...
Probably next week will be better...

The Dollar will crash. No doubt. Even if you live in the US you will have to deal with a high inflation.
Personally I cannot understand why the stock companies stay in the US. IRS Problem, a weak Dollar etc.

One potential problem with that is that Paypal can refuse you access to your own account at any time. They can do this if there is a problem with your account, even if it is not your fault. You might keep this in mind if there is a chance that you will need the Paypal money in a hurry.

I used to keep a lot of money in Paypal back when they paid some real interest, but I stopped when I learned that they can refuse people access to their accounts. Paypal is not a bank.

Not really especially when you start buying foreign goods or want to travel.

Bank can refuse acces to your money anytime, its just something so far out and unbeleivable to most americans or europeans... but ask someone from argentina...

If the dollar collapses, millions of peple will be refused their money by the banks all over the world.

I think that happened in 1929. 
But, if you believe everything you hear (or read), none of this will matter after December 2012.   :o ;D

You are risking to lose all your money if you leave it in your paypal account. Read the Paypal Terms and conditions. They can and many times simply do refuse to pay you out. Paypal is not reliable.

The sky is falling. Didn't you read it in the paper this morning?  ;D Seriously though... it stinks when you're on the wrong side of currency fluctuations, but isn't that just part of doing global business? You've opened up all these markets with the internet that weren't available before. Whether you're getting paid in a strong dollar, weak dollar, euro; it's all money that wasn't available to you before.
