Notification of Limited Account Access [Scanned] (IDENTITY THEFT/PHISHING SCAM, SUPPOSEDLY FROM "PAYPAL")

So, let's see if I've got this straight: Paypal has sent out probably thousands, perhaps millions of e-mails to "undisclosed-recipients", informing them that their "account" has been "limited"--now is this a coincidence or what? Nope. No coincidence. It's some nut's feeble attempt to steal  your identity. Never click on a link in a suspected scam e-mail. This one will take you to a phishing page, with a "Ways to Burn Belly Fat" advertisement at the top. Quite professional! If you receive one of these, forward it to, and they will get rid of the trash.

Notification of Limited Account Access

As part of our security measures, we regularly screen activity in

the PayPal system. We recently noticed the following issue on your account:

Unusual account activity has made it necessary to limit sensitive

account features until additional verification information can be collected.

We have been notified that a card associated with your account

has been reported as lost or stolen, or that there were

additional problems with your card.

Case ID Number: PP-071-362-996

Please fill in all the details that are required to complete this verification process.

To do this we have attached a form to this email. Please download the form and follow the

instructions on your screen. NOTE: The form needs to be opened in a modern browser which has

javascript enabled (ex: Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3, Safari 3, Opera 9)

Please understand that this is a security measure intended to help protect you and your account.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choice but

to temporary suspend your account.
