Dear Member:

Our security system noticed unusual charges to a credit-card linked to your PayPal account.

Unfortunately, your account has been temporarily limited because of the following reason:

Suspicious activities triggered our security system that led us to believe an un-authorized user
tried to use your PayPal account without your permission. In order to ensure greater security, we have
limited access to your account. We have sent you an attachment containing the necessary steps
in order to restore your account privileges. Simply download the form and open it in your web browser.

Please do understand that this is a security precaution to safeguard you and your
account. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.
