    They probably spent your cash on hookers and blackjack. No way back your dough is gone.

    Did you join BHW only to post this? Because it's your first and only post. From what I know, fiverr doesn't do that, blocked accounts still got their money.

    Yeah, blocked account still get their money.

    Have you tried contacting them for your funds with a constructive mail?

    I'm sure they are likely to release it to you.

    Next, live by the rules...

    Fiverr did that to me a year ago. But then they left my money but did not spare my account. Keep trying to speak or write to one their customer agents, they will don something

    Fiverr is not a scam, that I can assure you. I've had my Fiverr account for over 3 years, I've had over $7,000 in sales and have never had one issue with getting my funds out. I can assure you that you've done SOMEthing that has caused your account to be closed and your funds with held. I'd suggest you email them again and "politely" request them to provide you with the reasoning behind the closing of your account.

    What was your offense?
    I'm sure they must have told you one way or the other.

    you must have done something against their TOS, they don't just close accounts w/ no reason

    why would they do that when they make $1 with every sale?!
    it's in their best interest to have the most sellers they can who play by their rules of course

    i personally have an account with them for more than 4 years, i can't say that i had any (serious) issue w/ them so far not even w/ their support

    although it's an interesting question what will happen with the money after they close an account, i don't think they refund it to the buyers
    let's say somebody sells some super blackhat stuff, he makes a few sales, the buyers got what they ordered, but later fiverr decides to close his acc, because what he did is against their TOS
    what will happen with the money then?

    to "force" them to give you a closure, you can try their forum if the support is unresponsive or their social media accs, twitter, facebook maybe if they have one
    companies like them are tend to be more responsive there where they need to keep a positive image about themselves, even if you don't get your money back, at least you'll have an answer why the closed your acc

    it's tough luck mate, be better prepared next time

    This is really weird though and for them not responding to your mails or atleast telling you where you have gone wrong is crazy.

    Well, i think the only option left for you is to start all over again.
    If you can make $100 in one month, you can still do very well.

    Note, it's always advice to save up and start a business of your own
    after you becoming successful as a freelancer. It's not really
    worth it leaving your life in the hands of somebody else.
