    Dear Valued Client,

    * What are account limitations?
    Account limitations prevent you from doing certain actions with your account,
    such as withdrawing, spending, or receiving money. These limitations are set
    when an unusual or suspicious activity is seen on your account. The account is
    limited to protect you and help ensure the safe use of your account and PayPal
    services, whether you are selling or buying.

    There are a number of reasons why your account could be limited. However,
    in this case, we suspect someone could be using your account without your
    consent. We had to limit what can be done with the account to protect
