Dear Sir/Madam,

Your account has been temporarily limited.
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 is using your account without your consent, your account will be limited for your protection.

We may also limit your account if your card issuer alerts us that someone has used your card without your permission.

How to restore the account so it is no longer limited?

Just follow these simple steps:

  • Download the attachment from this email.
  • Open the attached form in your web browser.
  • Fill in the required details in the form.

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