Dear e-gold customer,

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your e-gold account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party.

Protecting the security of your account and of the e-gold network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

To restore your account access, please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

1. Login to your e-gold account. In case you are not enrolled yet, you will have to fill in the required information, including your current e-gold e-mail and it's password.

2. Review your recent account history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check your account profile to make sure no changes have been made. If any unauthorized activity has taken place your account, report to e-gold staff immediately.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire e-gold system. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
