I agree, if someone lost their business account it can easily add up to crazy amounts of $$ lost, or family pictures lost online is the modern day house fire. It's scary how much power we give these companies.

That's the lesson to be learned here.  Going forward, I will have all my emails/docs etc, forwarded and backed up to another email account.  It's literally mind boggling to contemplate the amount of lost information that has resulted from this "suspension."

How many people do think were shut down? Is it more than 15?

I think so.
We can ask the wholesaler how many people bought for him.
But I had 2 accounts shut. 1 was insignificant, the other was my regular backup account.

So, interesting update, when I filled out the disabled form for my secondary e-mail (albeit a work e-mail address) the response I received was basically "sorry, your account is not eligible for reinstatement." My spouses e-mail (their primary) the e-mail back stated "we are looking into your request and we've found that there is already a pending appeal on your account..." Has anyone here received the second appeals e-mail? Just curious

I think that is a good sign, my spouses didn't either, filled out one today and that is the response we received today (about the appeal).
