The stated reason for Amazon's action was that the user's account was "related" to another one that had been blocked for unspecified reasons. When the user asked Amazon

" Is it correct that you cannot give me any information about
1. How my account is linked to the blocked account
2. The name/id of the related blocked account
3. What policy that was violated"

she got no response.
This is what upsets me too. Amazon did not give her a fair response. They should have explained themselves and allowed her a chance to explain herself to them.

BTW. Amazon is not the only company to act in this way.
