I just got this e-mail today and I don't know whether I should click the link and log in. It seems a little odd, should I call up Paypal and ask about this before hand?

Resolution Center: Your account is limited.
(Your case ID for this reason is PP-141-663-***.)


PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening
the accounts in our system. We recently reviewed your account, and we
need more information to help us provide you with secure service. Untill
we can collect this information, your access to sensitive account features
will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible,
and we apologize for the inconvenience.

This is done for your protection only you, the recipient of this email can
take the next step in the remove limitation process.

Why is my account access limited?

Feb. 22, 2006: We have reason to believe that your account was accessed by
a third party. Because protecting the security of your account is our primary
concern, we have limited access to sensitive PayPal account features.
We understand that this may be an inconvenience but please understand that
this temporary limitation is for your protection.

(Your case ID for this reason is PP-141-663-***.)

How can I restore my account access?

Please visit the Resolution Center and complete the
"Steps to Remove Limitations."

Completing all of the checklist items will automatically restore your
account access.

Thank you for using PayPal!

If you are concerned, go to PayPal via the way you usually do and check that way... :thumbsup:

I didn't click the link in the e-mail, I went directly to paypal.com and logged in and I don't see anything abnormal. What was odd is that I tried to use my debit card this morning to take out money, and both times it woudln't let me, when I know I have money in there. Thats why I though getting an e-mail from Paypal was a little odd.

Here is the address that was in the e-mail: http://www.mm-k.ru/repair/.secure/us/cgi-bin/

Thanks for the quick responses guys.

Ignore it, it is bogus. I got one of those and never responded to it.

I do periodically check my Paypal account to make sure everything is OK.

Most of the time the message will say something like "A new name has been added to your paypal account." I've noticed that it tends to happen on the following day after I process a transaction through paypal.

there should be a link to their website
look at what it is
real one will say
http://www.paypal.com
fake out will say
https://www.paypal.com
also try to log into your account on a website and see if it looks normal or not without going through email

Umm you have it backwards. You want it to have the S as that stands for secure. As in 128 bit encrypted secure. If your ever asked to give out personal info and there is no S walk away.
