Unable to extend an invitation at this time

My name is Glen. I mistakenly opened up more than one MTurk account. I did this because I do not have cell phone service and could not reply to verify my identity. So I opened another account to continue working. That was not a good idea. I usually enjoy doing hits and made a few bucks. I now have only one account but all I get is this. Its been almost a year.

probably not. Your appeal has to be made to amazon and it sounds like they saw you as someone who was committing fraud. I have no idea what you should do. Perhaps you can reach out to them and explain? I'm not sure (if they saw you as having tried to defraud them, then you do need to explain. If not - explaining will make things worse).

That said, even a long explanation will probably fail. It might?? work with a lot of back and forth. But you'd have to find a way to 'talk' to someone and even that is really hard :(

Thank you Jan. I hope this gets to you. Thank you for your insight. The funny part is I have done hundreds if not thousand of hits with a 99% approval rate. I was not trying to defraud anyone.

Glen, reading your reply I get the impression that you think Jan works for Amazon, she does not nor does anyone on this forum. We are all just people who use MTURK to make some cash.
