Vía me entero que hay un correo con el siguiente contenido

PayPal is committed to maintaining a safe
environment for its community of customers. To protect the security of
your account, PayPal employs some of the most advanced security systems
in the world and our anti-fraud teams regularly screen the PayPal
system for unusual activity.

We are contacting you to remind you that on 10 April 2007 our Account
Review Team identified some unusual activity in your account. In
accordance with PayPal's User Agreement and to ensure that your account
has not been compromised, access to your account was limited. Your
account access will remain limited until this issue has been resolved.

To secure your account and quickly restore full access, we may require
some additional information from you for the following reason:

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.

This process is mandatory, and if not completed within the nearest time
your account or credit card may be subject for temporary suspension.

We encourage you to log in and perform the
steps necessary to restore your account access as soon as possible.
Allowing your account access to remain limited for an extended period
of time may result in further limitations on the use of your account
and possible account closure.

For more information about how to protect your account
please visit PayPal Security Center. We apologize for any incovenience
this may cause, and we apriciate your assistance in helping us to
maintain the integrity of the entire PayPal system.

Thank you for using PayPal!
