I got an email from PayPal saying that they intercepted suspicious activity on my account and hence locked it. At first I fell for it since I also received a text message (purpotedly from my Bank) that a transaction on my Credit Card was declined. The grammar of the email was unusually exceptional and not like the regular deliberately goofed up spams.
