Dear Customer,

It is unfortunate for us to notify you that we had to limit your account
because our security system has monitored 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 another person could be using your account without your
knowledge. We had to limit what can be done with the 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.
It's simple, please open the attachment that we have provided in which contains
a verification form for you to confirm your identity with us.

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

We apologize for the inconvenience.
