  2. Before you do anything - are you sure this isn't a scam? Were you contacted by email? Don't fax anything until you are sure!
  3. Hi,
    As Suedoc suggested...........be sure this is legitimate. Before you give out your personal information you should contact Paypal by phone and verify that the information being requested has been generated by Paypal. At one time Paypal froze my account due to someone else trying to access it, and after talking to them it was straightened out. Just be aware scammers are sending out email that look like they 're from Paypal or eBay. Good luck.

  4. sounds like phishing to me. . . Paypal doesn't send e-mails like that.
  5. BE very careful like the suggestions above. Never give out any personal info. Send paypal the link under "spoof email". It should also tell you how to tell when someone is "phishing".

  6. OP hasn't suggested that she received and email about this (yet).

    Asumming the OP onyl founf out once she attempted to log on: Paypal do limit people's accounts if they have good reason. Sometimes, you need to send them certain documents to get it sorted out.


    A typical reason for limiting the account is when the acount holder has made £4000 worth of transactions in the UK on an unconfirmed account. As soon as you hit this threshold you have to confirm your details to continue using the account
