Multiple Email Threats

Writer Wishes to Remain Anonymous

I don’t think I have ever had an account with you, but you keep sending me e-mails to my private e-mail address that I never use, threating me that you are closing my account and I may never be able to purchase on line again, and I also have received several e-mails that I have added people to my account.  I have no idea what you are talking about, but I do not like having my privacy invaded. Whenever I try to reply all I get is a returned e-mail stating that it is an invalid address.

Please respond and advise me.  Thank-You.

I have enclosed a  copy below of the e-mail I received from you today.

Dear PayPal Member,

Paypal is committed to maintaining a safe environment for its community of buyers and sellers. 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. Recently, 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 flagged. Your account will remain flagged until this issue has been resolved. This is a fraud prevention measure meant to ensure that your account is not compromised.

In order to secure your account and quickly restore full access, we may require some specific information from you for the following reason:

Our system requires further account verification.

Case ID Number: PP-056-245-481
We encourage you to log in and restore full access as soon as possible. Should your account remain flagged for an extended period of time, it may result in further limitations on the use of your account or may result in eventual account closure.
