Many of you have paypal accounts on your website. If you ever receive an email that says

Your account has been temporarily limited !

from email: intl-updates@paypal.com

and text that says:

Dear PayPal account holder,


PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening the accounts in our system. We have recently determined that different computers have tried logging into your PayPal account,and multiple password failures were present before the logons.

Until we can collect secure information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Download and fill out the form to resolve
the problem and then log into your account.

Thanks ,
PayPal

It is a phishing scam. Attached to the email is a form you are 'advised' to fill out which sends all your personal and billing information to the scammers.

If you ever get one of these emails, forward it to:

They will disable the senders account.
