Actually, no - I experienced almost precisely the same thing with an old
paypal account that we'd long since lost the password to and which was
associated with a dead e-mail address, and I remember experiencing
something similar to that described. I don't remember precisely how much
information I had to provide other than the account name.
I don't know if this only works with long-idle accounts, but I do recall
it being slightly odd at the time (and I checked the account was
legitimately closed! Thankfully, I wasn't too shocked since the account
was associated with dead bank details, anyhow..)
