Dear Customer,

It is unfortunate for us to notify you that we had to limit your account
because PayPal's security system has detected a suspicious activity in your
PayPal account.

There are a number of reasons why your account could be limited. However,
for this case, we suspect someone could be trying to use your account without your
consent. We had to restrict what can be done with your account to protect
you; through limiting it and investigating any potential fraud.

We need to get a bit of information from you to remove the limitation issue.
It's simple, please open the attached file that we have sent which contains
a verification form for you to confirm your identity with us.

PayPal's security team will review your information and immediately
remove the limitation from your account so it's restored back to normal.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,
PayPal Account Review Team
