    In accordance with PayPal's User Agreement, your account access will remain limited until the issue has been resolved.

    spam-i got one saying click here to see details of you recent order. I also had one claiming to be from amazon too-which i deleted, They do seem to be stepping up their emails now-they used to be extremely obvious but the paypal one was very good!!! The only giveaway really was the direct link saying click here to view your purchase...could catch a few people out!
