Time has shown discussing amex A/A publicly on this forum leading to more amex A/A. This entire mess was arguably caused by discussing amex A/A publicly. Maybe the conversation can be taken to a more appropriate venue?

Here's what they're emailing out on clawbacks:

Information about your Membership Rewards account
 
 We are writing to let you know that, after careful review of your Membership Rewards® account activity, we have removed points in your Membership Rewards program account. Please ensure that any Additional Card Members who are authorized to redeem points from your account are notified of this change in your Membership Rewards balance.
 
Why we are removing these points
We recently noticed point accrual and redemption activity on your
Membership Rewards program account that indicates an effort to obtain and use points in a manner that is not appropriate. It’s important for you to know that the
Membership Rewards program terms and conditions state that “if you attempt to use or obtain points in a fraudulent way, we may:
 
Take away all points in your program account,
Cancel your program account, or
Cancel any of your American Express Cards”
 
Your options
If you have any questions about this email, or if you believe that the points have been removed in error, please call us at 1-800-AXP-EARN (1-800-297-3276).

If your play etc with amex : Paedicabo ego vos et irrumabo,
Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi,
qui me ex versiculis meis putastis,
quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum.
Nam castum esse decet pium poetam
ipsum, versiculos nihil necesse est,
qui tum denique habent salem ac leporem,
si sunt molliculi ac parum pudici
et quod pruriat
incitare possunt,
non dico pueris, sed his pilosis,
qui duros nequeunt movere lumbos.
Vos quod milia multa basiorum
legistis, male me marem putatis?
Paedicabo ego vos et irrumabo

i am not a broker but my 2 cents is that these shutdowns have nothing to do with selling points. I've seen tons of data points and this is the only one who thinks it's bec of selling. Just like with the 100k link that went viral there is no reason for this info to be public and for Amex to read what people's sins are

People are traumatized from the last thread discussing amex A/A that arguably caused this whole mess. There is no upside to this thread, so the only possible outcome is negative. Anybody doing anything wrong knows who they are already. There's no need to discuss specifics publicly and rub it in amex's face. It'd be pretty naive to think that they're not monitoring this forum, especially given that they've given specific instructions what to allow on this forum and what to remove.

Btw, I don't know if this is random reviews, but one of my accounts is under review, and I never sold to a broker, and I didn't do any MS. About $20k of legit spending. They say it's regarding either a signup bonus or a referral bonus that spending may have not met the terms. AFAIK, I everything I did was legitimate. I guess I'll see what the outcome of the review will be. I don't see anything wrong with alerting people that Amex is doing a round of reviews these days, and people should be more cautious.
