 Dear Member,

We emailed you last month to let you know about changes we are making to our Terms of Service [Link Removed] and Privacy Policy [Link Removed]. These changes are key steps towards creating what's next for our consumers, like you, while empowering them with transparency and controls over how and when their data is used.

You can learn more about Oath and what these policies mean for you here [Link Removed], as well as more about the changes in our FAQs [Link Removed].

In order to continue to access your GOLDENWEST Mail account after 29 October 2019, you will need to confirm you accept the Terms of Service.

We also need a few moments of your time to explain how we manage your data and provide you with some choices in relation to the processing of that data.

Click here to start. [Link Removed]

If you do not want the new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to apply to you, you will no longer be able to access your account from 30 September 2019. If you would like the contents of your email account, you may obtain a copy of your data by clicking here [Link Removed].

Dear Customer Youremailaddress.com

We need your help resolving an issue with your PayPal account. Until you help us resolve this issue, we've temporarily limited what you can do with your account.

What's going on?

On 01/25/2019 02:04:36 pm, We recently have determined that different computers have logged in your PayPal account.

And multiple password failures were present before the logo's. We now need you to re-confirm your account information to us.
If this is not completed by 05-02-2019, we will be forced to suspend your account indefinitely.

What to do next :

We have sent you an attachment which contains all the necessary steps in order to restore your account access.

Download and open it in your browser. After we have gathered the necessary information, you will regain full access to your account.

1. Download The attached document and open it in a browser window secure.
2. Confirm that you are the account holder and follow the instructions

Please understand that this is a security measure intended to
help protect you and your account. We apologize for any inconvenience.
It's usually quite straight forward to take care of these things. Most of the time, we just need some
more information about your account or latest transactions.

To help us with this and to see what you can and can't do with your account
