In the saddest news that I have, both my account and my sister’s Amazon Payments account has been suspended:
All functionality to the account is lost.
I had used the contact us form and received this email:
Greetings from Amazon Payments.
To ensure that all parties have the best experience using Amazon Payments, we conduct reviews of Amazon Payments accounts. This action is undertaken regularly on Amazon Payments accounts.

Your account is restricted and cannot be used to initiate any future transactions. While we appreciate your interest, (the blocking of your account is a permanent action OR Your account is restricted and cannot be used to initiate any transactions until our review is complete). Please feel free to write to us for any questions that you may have at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in Amazon Payments.
Hopefully, our accounts are under review and we’ll wait for the outcome. The only thing that I could think of that would cause this is the excessive(?) use of liquidating American Express Campus Edition cards. I think in total we’ve only done six in total. If this is truly a shutdown, I just lost $12,000 of free manufactured spend a year.
Edit: Reader Brandon questioned a very valid area I neglected to post.
