Subject:  Added security measures
From:  PayPal <paypal@security.org>
Date:  Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:24:26 -0400
Category:  Generic
We had to limit your personal account because we
have monitored irregular login attempts into your account.
We believe someone tried to access your PayPal account without your
knowledge.

Usually, there are a number of reasons why we would limit
an account. The intention is to protect you and
the account.

When we limit an account, there are certain things
that PayPal may prevent you from doing, which includes
receiving, spending, or withdrawing money.

Before we can remove the account limitation, we need to confirm
your personal information with us. We have sent you a form which is
an attachment file in this email for you to go through with your browser.

By providing some information in the form, our security
team will then review it and immediately take actions
to lift off the limitation. Please understand that this is
implemented to safeguard you and your account.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,
PayPal Security Department

What Is This?

This Email with the Subject "Added security measures" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:24:26 -0400 and has been classified as a Generic Scam Email. The sender shows as PayPal <paypal@security.org>, although that address was probably spoofed.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
