I have a PayPal account which is registered to a Malaysian address, and today I have got the below email from Paypal.

As PayPal focuses on our business strategy of enabling secure and convenient commercial transactions in Malaysia, we regret to inform you that the Personal Payments service will no longer be available in Malaysia from 4 June 2013. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Yes Paypal is discontinuing its personal payments service on Malaysia on June 4th.  They have put a web page here addressing concerns of this move. This might be surely a shocking news for the genuine users of personal payments service.
