Access to your account is limited.

Please take a few minutes out of your online experience
to know why PayPal had to limit your account and know how
you are able to immediately restore your access back to normal.

Unfortunately, PayPal monitored a number of suspicious activities
with your account. We think that someone
was trying to use your account without your permission.
So we have currently limited your account to ensure your
safety and add security measures to your account.

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

How to remove the limitations:

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

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
PayPal
