PayPal limited account email

I also have been receiving several times this email saying that my account has been limited. The last email I received started like this: ͏Fw: [Reminder] New Statement - Your account is under review 08/05/2020‍ Re: Update Account Monthly - Your account is under review 04/08/2020‍ ͏Re: [Submitted] Update Monthly Statement - Please view your recent activity and we'll help you take corrective action. 08/05/2020‍ And many more. I want to know if this is a real email or a scam. I go to my PayPal and everything seems alright. I don't have any messages or notifications about it... Have any of you get something like this recently??

Yep sounds like a typical spoof so NEVER USE ANY LINK.

Firstly if the email/text addressed you as ''Dear Member'' / ''Customer'' / ''Client'' OR your ''email address'' then that confirms its a spoof as paypal would address you by your full name eg Dear John Smith.

Secondly if there was a link OR attachment in that email/text to ''cancel'' any transaction or ''confirm'' any details then again it would be a spoof.

If there was a problem with your account Paypal would not ask you to click on an unsafe link in an email or by downloading an attachment, they would direct you to log in normally and go to the resolution or the message centre for more information.
