Among the huge amount of the spams I receive every day I get this:

Dear Sir,

PayPal is committed to maintaining a safe environment for its community of buyers and sellers. To protect the security of your account, PayPal employs some of the most advanced security systems in the world and our anti-fraud teams regularly screen the PayPal system for unusual activity.

Recently, our Account Review Team identified some unusual activity in your account. In accordance with PayPal's User Agreement and to ensure that your account has not been compromised, access to your account was limited. Your account access will remain limited until this issue has been resolved. This is a fraud prevention measure meant to ensure that your account is not compromised.

In order to secure your account and quickly restore full access, we may require some specific information from you for the following reason:

We would like to ensure that your account was not accessed by an unauthorized third party. Because protecting the security of your account is our primary concern, we have limited access to sensitive PayPal account features. We understand that this may be an inconvenience but please understand that this temporary limitation is for your protection.

Case ID Number: PP-046-631-789

We encourage you to log in and restore full access as soon as possible. Should access to your account remain limited for an extended period of time, it may result in further limitations on the use of your account or may result in eventual account closure.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Please understand that this is a security measure meant to help protect you and your account. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This is obviously a phising! How do I know that? Weel, I tried to open PayPal account several times, but I can't because I live in Croatia, and they don't have contracts with the banks in my country. So how could they verify my account if I don’t have one? Link that was in mail is not PayPal link.

You must be very careful with such mails. They are not sent form PayPal. It is somebody’s clever idea of collecting free information on credit cards. If you verify your account after this mail, don’t be surprised if some money is missing from your bank.
