Dear Valued PayPal Member,

During our regularly schedule account maintenance and verification we have detected a slight error in your billing information on file with PayPal.
This might be due to either following reasons:

- A recent change in your personal information (i.e. change of address)
- An inability to accurately verify your selected option of payment due an internal error within our processors.

Therefore your account has been temporarily suspended. We need you to confirm your identity in \order to regain full privileges of your account.
However, failure to update your records will result in account suspension.

If this is not completed by Octomber 15, 2006, we reserve the right to terminate all privileges of your account indefinitly, as it may have been used for fraudulent purposes. We thank you for your cooperation in this manner.
