I started to get the message three days ago and called PayPal. I was unable access my account and also couldn't access PayPal at all. I told the outsourced operator the message I received and after much runaround she finally said, "PayPal is having a few issues. Try again later today."
By today I was in a complete panic. I finally grabbed the message and Googled it. Guess how many answers popped up? Ok - I don't know exactly how many but it was a bunch.

Right before solving this problem I finally received my password from Hot Air.
I am now able to remove the cold cloth from my forehead and rejoin the land of the living. It's nice to be back.
