We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to your PayPal account from a different IP address.

If you recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual log in attempts may have been initiated by you. However, if you did not initiate the log ins, please visit PayPal as soon as possible to check-up your account information: cmd=_login-run

Thanks for your patience.
