The log in attempt was made from: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxnot copied!

If you choose to ignore our request , your account will be suspended until you will verify your identity.

We ask that you allow at least 72 hours for the case to be investigated and we strongly recommend not to make any changes to your account in that time. If you received this notice and you are not the authorized account holder, please be aware that it is in violation of PayPal policy to represent yourself as another PayPal user.
