    Spam them back with this:

    Dear PayPal,

    As a security measure, I regularly screen PayPals activity. Recently, I noticed activity associated with PayPal and eBay that poses a potential risk to me.

    Case ID Number: PP-XXXX-DCXS-XSXS

    I limited your access to my bank account temporarily. I'll review the limitation once you respond with the information I've requested; Passport, bank account details a diary of your movements etc.

    To respond and remove the limitation, go to the Resolution Center. If you'd like clarification on the limitation, please let me know by going to the Help Center and clicking Contact Us. You may wait forever for a response, and when I do respond I will only ask you to scan and email more of your private documents and waste more of your time.

    Thank you for helping to prolong this problem. I am enjoying all of your money right now.

    Sincerely,
    YourName

    Please do not reply to this email. This mailbox is not monitored and you will not receive a response. For assistance, log in to PayPal and click the Help link in the top right corner of any PayPal page.

    It seems to mainly happen when you use different IPs to login, or someone logs into your account from another place.
    Paypal also uses flash cookies, so if you have more than one account or log into multiple accounts they use that to track you even if your IP is unique.
