Thanks for your help.  My tenant does not have the same IP address.  I have already called about 5 times (not everyday) over a few weeks and haven't had any luck yet.  Also did not use AP to rack up points with other people as far as I know.

The line that says any ideas in the previous post was from me, not amazon,  that part was still a quote.

Hi I'm sure this has been covered I read a few pages but not all 246 on this thread.  I need some help. My tenent payed me a few times through amazon payments and I currently have $1000 in the account. They account has been suspended and I cant withdraw the funds or speak to an account rep as they "dont have phone support".   I only used the account for legit purposes and I'm not sure why it was frozen.  The only thing I can think of is that we both have the same address as I live in a legal 2 family house. THis is the response I got from them:
"To ensure that all parties have the best experience using Amazon Payments, we conduct reviews of Amazon Payments accounts. This action is undertaken regularly on Amazon Payments accounts. Unfortunately, at this time, we are not able to approve your request for an Amazon Payments Account based on our review of your intended use of our payments service.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help in advance.

I used Amex insurance when I went to Israel.  You need to be a cardholder.   I didnt end up having a claim but it was very cheap.  You can buy for a year and then cancel when you get back.  I was very upfront about cancelling after my trip and the rep was fine with it.

I live in queens.  i think a jewelery (lower end) or silver store may work.  One obvious issue however is that you make your house much more of a target to be broken in to.

Buying a house can be very worth it but it takes a lot of effort and money.
The home inspector if worth every penny.  Frequently they are able to point out valid issues you may not realize which will let you renegotiate  the sales price.  Be aware that they work for you and may say a small crack is a huge problem in order to help you save money, but realize they could be lying for your benefit.
  Closing costs can cost tens of thousands of dollars in some places (like nyc). find out what they are on a house to help you determine what you can afford.
  Mortgage are very low now.  In a few years they probably will be double what the are now.  Get in now if you can.  There are some mortgages called "arms" which are cheaper than fixed rate morgages. Do not get one to save yourself $20 a month for five years; the rate will readjust in the future and probably be much much higher then.
   If you  want to buy because you "dont want to keep on throwing money out " by renting, that is a good reason but  keep in mind you  pay a ton of interest and dont start getting a lot of  equity for quite a while.  After the first year of a 30yr mortgage you have only paid off 1% of the loan the rest goes to interest.   
   Buying a house that needs work can save you a ton of money.   However  you need to be able to go through the "hock" of doing more repairs and work.  (if you are reading this blog then by definition you are a bit of a "hocker" so it shouldnt be a problem).  Things like carpet and painting are only cosmetic issues and easy to deal with but structual and extension issues require a pro.  If the previous owners just redid a kitchen within the past few years then you probably are paying for all the time and money they put into it and then some.  Not that you shouldnt buy a house with a new kitchen but just realize the sales price will reflect that.
  If you want to buy a foreclosure, chances are you want to live in a frum neighborhood too and everyone else wants that one foreclosed house. You wont get it.
You need to have a reserve for repairs. they always need to be done.  I heard someone say budget $100 a month for them.  That seems a bit high to me but boilers and roofs (and everything else) need to be replaced and they cost lots of money.
Good luck.  All in all its worth it but "marbeh nechasim marbeh daygeh."
