    Just contact them, no need to be afraid of them.
    I have been limited 5 times or so, every time my account has been restored after i contact them.

    NP.

    This is just how they roll i guess, they like to limit people for smallest of things. Because lets be honest, there is a lot of fraud going on by the users also :p
    (P.S Not defending PP but still lol)

    Email them or ring them up. They usually do it to ensure you are not scamming people or trying to run away with money.

    With the email they sent they should provide a contact number and a reference number.

    The whole thing takes about 10 minutes, if that?

    Like others have said, don't be scared or worried..it's standard practise and procedure for most companies to do this.

    Call them up and play stupid with them. Upload the documents to your PayPal account and then you can talk to them. A
    All they want to do is talk things over. Keep all of your information in front of you so you know exactly what your talking about.

    I opened a new account at Paypal - and when it received its first money - I got a message account limited until I provide documentation -- apparently something to do with $1000 limit they place on accounts.

    was no trouble to do the verification though as it was real info ... but yeah your going to need some help as you mentioned to provide the right documents.
