To our Valued Customer,

An un-authorized user tried to access your account without your consent. Our security team had to 
set an access limitation to your account.

There are a variety of reasons why an account is set to Limited; One of them is un-authorized 
access (another user tried to use your account without your consent).

To remove the limitation on your account, you will need to verify your account. It would take 5-10 
minutes to do this; the procedure is very simple.
An attachment is given to you through this notification. Please download and open it in your 
browser to verify your account.

The account will be restored back to its normal state after you have provided the legitimate 
information in the form.

Thank you in advance for the information that you wish to provide. Please do understand that this 
is a security measure intended to protect your account.

Regards,
PayPal Account Security Department
