You would think that your average enterprising-but-non-English-speaking Pirate Of The Internets would: a) spell check his work ('suspention?' 'temporarylimited'), b) dream up a slightly more realistic return address than akstcabsonlinemnsdgs@absonline.net, which sounds like, hmm, a RUSE.  Plus: grammar.  "Login your Paypal?"  Oh, shiver me timbers.

I like the dreaminess of "Steps to remove limitations," though.  

Now, if only I had a Paypal account.
