preventing anyone outside U.S. from using my account

I recently got a PasyPal alert that someone outside U.S. had tried to user my account. There was nothing in my transactions, so I figure you blocked it. Is there a setting I can check to deny access to any transaction outside US? Or is that automatically done?

Re: preventing anyone outside U.S. from using my account

You may want to ensure that the alert you received is not a spoof.  

* Forward the entire email to:    spoof@paypal.com.
* Do not alter the subject line or forward the message as an attachment.
* Delete the suspicious email from your inbox.
* Never click on any links within the email or open any attachments.

Look at the email address domain and wording in the email, grammar, salutation, spelling, etc.  If any of these are questionable, it's most likely a spoof.

 

Note, Business accounts do have a feature to require a US billing address for all purchases made using PayPal however, this would not apply to your scenario.
