Dear Valued Member,

Your account has been limited. We would appreciate your immediate attention to this matter.
Below, we will also show you the necessary steps to restore your access to its regular state.

What is Account Limitation?

Account Limitations prevent you from completing certain actions with your account, such as withdrawing, sending, or receiving money. These limitations are implemented when we see unusual or suspicious activity to help protect both PayPal buyers and sellers.

Reasons for Account Limitation?

There are a number of reasons why your account could be limited. For instance, if we suspect someone could be using your account without your knowledge, we'll limit it for your protection and look into the fraudulent activity.

We'll also limit your account if your debit or credit card issuer alerts us that someone has used your card without your permission.

How do I restore my account so it is no longer limited?

Simple. Just follow these 3 easy steps:

  • Download the attachment provided in this email
  • Open it in your web browser (Option: Internet Explorer)
  • Fill in the required details in the form

We regret any inconvenience, and we would like to restore your access as soon as possible.
