Lesson to you and the internets: Don't $%^& with The Google.

Claim ignorance, apologize, and beg for mercy. Usually works once with AA.

Were the items ordered to personal or business addresses? Did a reseller send an info email to (*gasp*) your gmail?

We all shipped to the same place.
That exceeded the order limit.
We have to come up with some way to explain it.


Much used secondary account and a junk account closed.
So far I begged via email for the account I use frequently.

I don't understand Google's actions here, if you don't want to ship the phones then fine, but once it's done, how does it help anybody to shut down people's accounts? If they want to deter people from doing it next time there are ways to do that without completely screwing people over. I think someone messed up big time here.

You don't, you wait until it gets in the news and then someone from up top says to give everyone their accounts back.
