Account Cancelled due to Suspicious Activity - Case# 00669912

Account Cancelled due to Suspicious Activity - Case# 00669912

I'm writing this as a last ditch effort after taking a deep breath.  My account was cancelled and I have had no luck getting it resolved in a week.  All get is curt automated responses.  I switched to Spotify and told everyone how great it is. Now I am sort of embarrassed.  Sort of like recommending a restaurant to someone and then hearing they had a awful meal.  So my case # is 00669912.  I hope to hear some good news, heck I'd settle for any news.   My email trail is below for anyone interested.


Hi there, 

Thanks for getting in touch.

Here's what we got from you: 
I have received a message - 
Dear Spotify user,
We're writing to let you know that your Spotify account has been disabled because we have detected suspicious streaming activity on the account.
Any paid subscription has been cancelled.
If you would like further information, please contact Spotify Customer Service:
-- Spotify Customer Service

There are two users on this paid account - myself and my husband. We cancelled our paid Rhapsody account because we prefer the Spotify service. My husband is the biggest user, playing it from his phone while he builds custom furniture. We have also set up several playlists for working out and entertaining. I can't imagine what in our activity is suspicious. And I can't imagine why you would just cancel our account. 

I would really like a further explanation and for you to re-enable our account. I can be reached at the email address above or on my mobile phone at XXXXXXXXXXXX

Thank you.

Hey there,


We're writing to let you know that your Spotify account has been disabled because we have detected unusually high streaming activity on the account. 


This means that one or more individual tracks or artist have been streamed an unusually large number of times. If you believe that this has happened in error, please reply to us again explaining the nature of the error, and it will be investigated further.


Any paid subscription has been cancelled.

doughonabach - Looks like we replied a couple of hours ago. We can't sort anything like this out over the Community, I'm afraid. If you have any more questions, please reply to the email we sent.
