Paypal Spoop's

They are getting better, I got this one today. I don't know why the wrote in English as I have 2 paypal accounts, 1 in German & 1 in French.

Giving 1 days notice would also be a give away...


Dear user ,Your Account Will Be Closed

You still have not provided the information about your activity, required for reasons of compliance and regulation.

You must provide this information before 14/11/2015 to prevent your account is restricted.

It will only take a few minutes.

How to send us the requested information ?

Just click the button below. You will be redirected to the PayPal website. Log in and follow the instructions.

Why this request ?

Under FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, a tax law of the United States), any financial institution like PayPal needs to gather additional information when opening a new account Business. This information is necessary even if your business or customers are located outside the US and do not pay taxes in the United States. It is for reasons of compliance and regulations that we ask for this information. To learn more about FATCA, cliquez ici.



Provide information
Best regards,
PayPal

Is a 'spoop' similar to a spoof?

Re: Paypal Spoop's

I stop reading these after "Dear User..."

If they are asking about my account then they know who I am and would address me by name, not by User.
