Really? You think that mangled sentence is going to persuade me to click on your links?

and
This require you to update your billing information as soon as possible.

You are not convincing me…..

This billing update is also a new PayPal security statement which goes according to the established norms on our terms of service (TOS) to reduce the instance of fraud on our website.

failure to update your records may result on a suspension of your account.

Ah the scare tactic! Nope, does not convince me.

Of course what they hope is that you will click on one of their links instead of going to PayPal and logging in which is the correct way to do it. NEVER click on a link in something like this. ALWAYS go to the site and log in normally.

Complete numpties as usual.
