Dear valued PayPal Customer, 

Due to recent fraudulent transactions, we have issued the following security

It has come to our attention that 98% of all fraudulent transactions are
caused by members using stolen credit cards to purchase or sell non existant
items. Thus we require our members to add a Debit/Check card to their
billing records as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account
and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website. Your Debit/Check card
will only be used to identify you. If you could please take 5-10 minutes out
of your online experience and renew your records you will not run into any
future problems with the PayPal service. However, failure to confirm your
records will result in your account suspension. 

We are requesting this information to verify and protect your identity.
Federal regulations require all financial institutions to obtain, verify,
and record identification from all persons opening new accounts or obtaining
ongoing payment services. This is in order to prevent the use of the U.S.
banking system in terrorist and other illegal activity. For these reasons,
PayPal will utilize services provided by various credit reporting agencies
to verify the information you submit to us. 

Once you have updated your account records your pending PayPal account
transactions will not be interrupted and will continue as normal. 

To update your billing records please proceed to our secure webform by
clicking here.

Thank you for your time,
PayPal Billing Department.
