The guys in M$ are really crossing all limits beyond idiocy... Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad:

I log into an account, that I have almost 20 years and that I use pretty often. I just ordered something and I wanted to forward the receipt to another email that I use for this...

"We need to verify your account, please introduce a phone number, we will send you a code"
D'Oh! | :doh: D'Oh! | :doh: I don't see the need, but OK.

I type the code, click send... nothing.
Confused | :confused: Confused | :confused:

I try it again...

Error: We have encountered an error, something in the activity of your account is suspicious and has been blocked.
OMG | :OMG: OMG | :OMG: OMG | :OMG: OMG | :OMG: WTF | :WTF: WTF | :WTF: WTF | :WTF: WTF | :WTF: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad:

I log off... log in...
Message: "We have detected that your account was being use to send suspicious emails and has been blocked, if you want to unblock..."

Grrrr.... OK. Give me a new code.

Message: Your limit for activation codes have been reached, please try again tomorrow....

WHAT THE ELEPHANT????

Are they really wanting that bad to annoy the people out?
M.D.V. Wink | ;)

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
