Dear Valued Customer,

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

There are quite a number of reasons why your account could be limited. However,
in this case, we suspect that someone could be using your account without your
consent. We had to restrict on 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 in order to remove the limitation issue.
Please simply open the attachment that we have provided which contains
a form for you to confirm your identity with us.

Our specialized 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
