A Scam Email with the Subject "We have limited your account temporarily" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 31 Aug 2016 10:37:31 -0400 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was PayPal <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Your account is facing temporary limitations.

Please take a few minutes out of your online experience
to know why our security team had to limit your personal account and know how
you are able to immediately restore your access back normally.

Unfortunately, our security system detected a couple of suspicious activities
with your account. We have reason to believe that someone
may have tried to use your account without your permission.
So we have currently limited your account to ensure your
safety and increase security measures to your account.

For now, these limitations will prevent you from
doing certain actions in your account, such as
spending, withdrawing, or receiving money. This is applied
to block unauthorized activity.

How to lift the limitations:

We need to hear from you. We have sent a form
for you to complete, please open the attachment
in this email in your web browser. After we have reviewed
your information, we can then lift the limitations
from your PayPal account.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

PayPal Security Team
