A Scam Email with the Subject "Your account has been limited" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 05 Sep 2016 09:02:05 -0400 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was PayPal <>, although it may have been spoofed.

A suspicious activity was detected from your PayPal account. We believe
that someone tried to access your account without
your knowledge.

As part of our increased security measures, our security system has limited your account
until we hear from you. Limiting an account is implemented to
protect you and your PayPal account, so that it prevents unauthorized
activity from your account.

When we limit an account, PayPal prevents you from sending,
receiving, or in rare-cases withdrawing money. This ensures
more security for our clients.

The short steps to remove the limitations:

You may download and open the attached file that we have provided in this email
and go through the form, confirming your identity with us.
After doing so, we can then review the information that you
provided, and restore your account back to normal.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Thank you,
PayPal Security Team
