    Paypal limited access :( ?

    I have had an email from paypal saying my account is now limited access due to a third party being suspected of accessing my account.

    I have looked up on this and apparently its a scam to get your details as there is a cloaked web address sent in the email.

    However the email i got from paypal did not have any links included to click on, just instructed me to sign into my paypal account in a new window to find out more.

    It says its limited 'temporarily'. So do i just wait it out or what?

    Like i said, no link is included to click on so it doesnt seem to be a scam, as when i sign into my account, it also shows a red bar saying my account is limited.

    What do i do

    Help much appreciated, thanks!

    If it's temporarily limited just monitor it and wait and see what happens.

    dont just leave it otherwise itll stay limited, you need to do to the resoloution center and see what you need to do, ie submit proof of address, refresh details ect, its a pain in the arse i know,

    have you just recently sold anything highrisk suck as a mobile phone??

    it is not a genuine email, log into your paypal account by entering the URL in the bar above yourself, copy and paste them the full content of the email, the link in the email takes you to a copy of the real thing where they save and access your account details, and then fraudulently use your account!

    ignore this post i didnt read you properly

    it says;


    We've temporarily limited access to your account
    1. Return to limitation details
    2. Complete the steps listed on this page to initiate a review of the limitations
    then underneath says;

    Begin a limitation review:

    To do: Change password *(Tick)
    Update security questions *(Tick)
    Validate your account information *(Tick)


    So i have done all the above the *(Tick) is actually a green tick and says they are all complete, so should my account have the limitation taken off or?
