This looks fishy, The email address I received this was used to signup for my first paypal account like 4 years ago. It was limited more than 2 years ago and I didnt bothered to restore it again. And it was surely registered for English language and my Sri Lankan home address. So even if this is legitimate email, I’m wondering why it has to be in Chinese. And there are so many things there which isn’t just right, just look at it.
