    Dear Associate,

    Your Associates account has come up for review in connection with our ongoing monitoring of the Amazon Associates Program. During our review, we have determined that you are not in compliance with the Operating Agreement that governs your participation in the Associates Program and your Associates Program account has been closed. You will not receive further payment of advertising fees.

    You are not in compliance with the Associate Program Linking Requirements because your site makes inaccurate, overbroad, deceptive or otherwise misleading claims about Products, the Amazon Site, or our policies, promotions or prices.

    Additionally, you are not in compliance with Section 2 of the Operating Agreement because the information in your Program application and otherwise associated with your account (including your email address and other contact information and identification of your site) is not accurate or up-to-date. You are referring traffic from a site not identified on your account.

    You can find the complete terms of the Operating Agreement, including the Participation Requirements and Linking Requirements, via this link:
    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement.

    We ask that you immediately remove all Amazon Content from your site(s). Any other accounts you have or may open in the future may be closed and you will not receive any advertising fees. We reserve all other rights and claims we may have.

    I mentioned some thing like price under $100 or price about $100.

    and in the end of every article i mentioned some thing like "price may vary from time to time"

    I received a similar ban... I tried to contact them but no response.. I tried to create a new account with new phone... new email.. same address & same websites but the new account was banned after 2 months so close before withdrawal period.

    Now I will try with new name, new address, new sites for approval.. then add my old sites after receive first payment..

    Hope it helps you to understand that is faster to create a new account rather than recover the old one..
