Re : Reminder: [New Statement Update] : We have reported new order activity 11/12/2017

Monday, December 11, 2017 (EST), We noticed a successful sign in to your PayPal account from an unrecognized device in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
You must be verified before it can be used to recover your account. If you have not completed verification, your account will be limited, please visit:

This is why it is important that PayPal users remember never to click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign-in from there instead. Once they have signed into their accounts they will be notified of changes and other important updates if there is any.This will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams, where cyber criminals steal their credentials, hijack their accounts, steal their money, and use their accounts fraudulently.
PayPal users who have already been tricked by a phishing scam, are asked to change their passwords and contact PayPal immediately for help.
