Default Cease and desist letter from PP

While I was surfing the internet for some information about resolving my limitations, I came across this post made by someone on a forum. I don't know if it's legit, but if it is, it's interesting that PayPal's starting to threaten people. "John Doe" didn't remove their name and address from their post, but I figure I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and edit it for him.

I'm going to take a guess and say that he didn't create new stealth accounts. But is it really worth a cease and desist letter because some genius didn't understand why all his new accounts kept getting limited?

Re: Unauthorized Access and Use of PayPal Inc.’s Website

Dear John Doe:

You were previously notified that your PayPal account(s) was permanently limited and you are prohibited from accessing any PayPal website worldwide. However, it has come to our attention that you violated this prohibition and created additional PayPal accounts. By this letter, PayPal demands that you cease and desist any and all attempts, whether now or in the future, to access any PayPal website or otherwise circumvent your limitations. Failure to heed this demand will expose you to criminal and/or civil liability.

Unauthorized access to PayPal’s website violates our User Agreement as well as various federal and state laws. For example, 47 U.S.C. §§ 1030 et seq., the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (the “CFAA”), outlaws intentionally accessing a computer used in interstate commerce without authorization. Violations of the CFAA give rise to both civil and criminal penalties. Similarly, California Penal Code Section 502 (“Section 502”) protects computer systems, such as PayPal’s, from unauthorized access. Violations of Section 502 also give rise to civil and criminal penalties.

PayPal takes seriously your continued unauthorized access to its websites. We are continuing to investigate the matter and reserve our right to turn this activity over to the authorities and/or institute litigation against you if you fail to comply with this letter. In addition to seeking injunctive relieve forcing you to stop accessing PayPal’s websites, PayPal will also seek to recover its attorneys’ fees,
costs and any other economic harm caused thereby.

This letter is not intended to be a complete statement of our position in this matter, and PayPal reserves all rights and remedies with respect to it.

If he was using stealth accounts he certainly did it wrong.
Heights by great men reached and kept
Were not obtained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.
