PayPal Internet Banking

Dear PayPal valued member,
Recently, we received a lot of complaints about scams involving non-verified users.

What does it mean to be Verified?

Verification increases the security of the PayPal network. Verified members have successfully completed PayPal's verification system to establish their identity with us. The verification process varies by country. In the U.S., a Verified member has confirmed a bank account with PayPal. In Germany, a Verified member has completed a bank transfer or the Expanded Use Process. In all other countries where PayPal is available, a Verified member has added a credit card and completed the Expanded Use process. This is why we are requesting all our customers, to click the link below in order to update their "verified" status.
