Is posting about this on DDMS really productive at this point?
You guys decide. I'm happy to make a post on it.

How many dealers/shipping addresses were there? Were these all going to NH?

I think you may get some real data (such as how many people) and may help these people get their accounts back. Cant hurt?

I'm just curious why is this different than advertising for the coin deals from the mint which is clearly against the household limit

Because the DDMS post asking people to order is not asking people to order 100 coins to one person.

Warn others to backup their accounts/not mess with Google.
Try to go viral with Google shutting down accounts and put pressure on them.

the crazy thing is, they did cancel orders, one account they canceled the order and then emailed me apologizing and offered me a 2 day shipping free and a direct link to order again and a 100 google play credit to be emailed to me  in a month ..

We do not recommend changing the household limits.
And they ship to you, not to a place with no sales tax getting thousands of orders.

And
Lesson learned is don't mess around with companies that you can't afford to pi** off.

It's harder for the Mint to track, and it's technically within the household limits.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
