    My account was suspended for my phone number not matching my country listed in my profile. I said I was from US and used a UK number so beware all that did the same.

    What should I do? Make a new account and just get a new account that is verified with a US #? Can I link the same paypal to it? Do I have to have a different IP?

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah AC had a loophole where you could verify your US based account using a phone from any country, but they fixed it recently.

    Now your telephone number must be from the country that you selected while creating your account.

    A run of bad luck mate.

    One good thing comes out of this. We learn from trail and error.

    Yup I guess I learned. Should I tell them I'm from a different country and they will switch it for me so I can get paid? They owe me the money so I think they would still pay, I just can't do anymore articles or whatever the limits are to non US?

    Aaaw! When did you verify your account and when did they suspend it?

    What if you're a US citizen who is currently in some other country?

    Have you been paid before or were you supposed to receive your first payment when your account was suspended?

    Wait a second...I GOT IT!
    Here's the plan I'm serious not jk:
    Contact Ac Support.

    Tell them you had a trip to the UK and you used the number there.

    Find a US number.

    Get paid.

    I got paid for a few articles but I also had a few more payments that were supposed to come in. They offered; I accepted; then I confirmed payments and the next day I tried to login: Suspended

    ^Geez! That's really too bad for so many AC publishers. But are you sure your account was suspended because of the phone number you used to verify the account and not for some other reason?

    I can make another account and get a US activated account, I was just wondering if it matters what paypal I link it to.

    Same here.. After submitting 100+ articles and earning $300+ they suspended 3 of my accounts ... :)

    @Silencer - they are asking for tax form to revoke the ban so I guess you can't tell them that you were in UK etc. won't work if you someone is not from US ...
