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
