    I have received two of these emails, one at 1:15am and the other at 8:47am. My initial reaction was "oh no, someone is trying to access my account".

    However I know to NEVER click on links from emails like this. I googled it and quickly discovered it was a scam.

      Cyber-criminals use email bots to search the internet for email addresses. They also use malicious programs to infect their victims' computers and search them for email addresses.

      It is also possible that you may have registered with a phishing or other malicious websites unintentionally using your email address.

    I think there is now a new scam similar to the one mentioned above. I received this today.

    Dear PayPal member,

    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.Until 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.


    why is my account access limited?


    Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):

    We have reason to believe that your account was accessed by a third party. We have limited access to sensitive PayPal account
    features in case your account has been accessed by an unauthorized third party. We understand that having limited access can be an
    inconvenience, but protecting your account is our primary concern.

    here to remove your limitation
