hi everyone,yesterday evening at abt 6.28 PM, i got a mail from paypal that my account has been limited and it said that i cannot withdraw or send money from my paypal account from my account.. just a few minutes ago i received *** $ from my friend. he asked me to withdraw his amt and give him.. i went to see my paypal account, it said that i have to provide shipping details to all the transaction to remove the limitation, i dont know what to do.. i logged out thinking that my money and my frens money are gone.... but after exactly 10 minutes i got a mail from paypal that my account has been fully restored and the limits lifted... i was so happy after that... i withdrew the total amount immediately Did this happen to any of u???

Are you sure the first email was not a fraud email or a phishing email?

This has never happened to me. But it's really weird. Did you ever find out what went wrong? Was it just a system glitch? I'll be getting money from Paypal very son so I hope nothing bad happens! I'm glad you problem has been resolved though. It would be terrible if they froze your account indefinitely.

I am so happy for you that you got it unfrozen. You have to be so careful to make sure those emails actually come from Paypal too.
