    Have been making a steady amount on amazon from some great method lately.
    Until yesterday I could not login onto my Amazon affiliate account.
    It just sayas wrong email/password combo.

    I tried resetting my password, but no email arrives -_-
    I contacted their support & no reply yet.

    If I get banned, shouldn't they at least say your account has been suspended blabla... ??

    Regards

    I doubt that one :)
    even if I had been banned, too many other things don't match up
    plus I manually monitor & accept ALL outgoing & incoming connections, unless they have bill gates hacking me

    I think amazon send a notice for people who are banned. Try "forgot my password" and see what happens.

    When Amazon bans accounts, they usually don't tell you anything; you simply won't be able to log into it. Your best bet is to call them up on the phone and demand information from them. This is also what they do with selling accounts that you get from sellercentral.amazon.com

    I don't know what you guys were doing to get banned

    but basically I know one thing they look for - is that every Sale needs a referrer or Site Link behind it.

    so something like Brads Redirector may work if you have some posts on the site you could use.
