PayPal Email Phishing Scam #3

Subject: Client Notification

Dear Customer

Access to your account have been limited temporarily because there were numerous login attempts which our security team believe isn't coming from you.

We have sent you this notification hoping that you would provide some information with us; thus verifying that you are the legitimate account holder.
When an account has been limited, PayPal often need some form of verification from its customers to solve the problem.

We have sent you a form through which you may download (see attachment). We kindly ask that you provide some information in regards to your account.

Our security team will immediately review the information you have provided, and your account should be restored back to normal.

We would like to thank you for your attention to this matter.

PayPal Account Security Team
