Dear Customer Youremailaddress.com

We need your help resolving an issue with your PayPal account. Until you help us resolve this issue, we've temporarily limited what you can do with your account.

What's going on?

On 01/25/2019 02:04:36 pm, We recently have determined that different computers have logged in your PayPal account.

And multiple password failures were present before the logo's. We now need you to re-confirm your account information to us.
If this is not completed by 05-02-2019, we will be forced to suspend your account indefinitely.

What to do next :

We have sent you an attachment which contains all the necessary steps in order to restore your account access.

Download and open it in your browser. After we have gathered the necessary information, you will regain full access to your account.

1. Download The attached document and open it in a browser window secure.
2. Confirm that you are the account holder and follow the instructions

Please understand that this is a security measure intended to
help protect you and your account. We apologize for any inconvenience.
It's usually quite straight forward to take care of these things. Most of the time, we just need some
more information about your account or latest transactions.


To help us with this and to see what you can and can't do with your account
until the issue is resolved, log in to your account and go to the
Resolution Center.

Yours sincerely,
PayPal
