- Buying or selling accounts
- Creating duplicate accounts
- Collecting personally identifiable information (like asking workers for their phone numbers or emails addresses)
- Using MTurk to attempt to generate click-through traffic or "referred" site visits
- Spamming, phishing, or pharming
- Marketing or advertising activities
- Unsolicited contact of third parties and users
- Using scripts, or, and other methods to complete Human Intelligence Task (HIT)
- Scraping content or data from the MTurk site
- Posting HIT on behalf of third parties, or that contain personal details of third parties, or adult content
What to Do if You Get Suspended From MTurk?
Sadly, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to recover your MTurk account. This is irrespective of whether the suspension was valid or not. Amazon might still refuse to lift it.
But this shouldn't discourage you from trying. It is still very possible to get your MTurk account back.
Here's how to do it:
- Read the suspension notice and try to understand it.
- Find out why you were suspended and how to follow the claims you violated.
- Fix the problem by reaching out to the customer support team – see details below.
- Write an appeal response to the suspension and wait for days.
Contact Customer Support Online
Use the online contact form at the bottom of MTurk's homepage to reach out to their customer support. Usually, they'll respond within 1-2 business days and provide a canned response about why you were suspended.
Send an Email
You can use multiple emails to contact MTurk customer support, including firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, but sadly, a response is not guaranteed. The only consolation is that these emails are read and can sometimes be investigated further.
Alternatively, you can let DoNotPay do these steps for you, which will result in faster appeal responses.

How to Keep Yourself From Getting Banned on MTurk
Amazon reserves the right to suspend or ban your account and not reinstate it. But you can do a few things to avoid getting your account banned.
For example, you can be honest with the requesters, not create multiple accounts, or let other people use yours. While these might seem like common sense, most people get suspended and banned for these reasons.
You can learn more about this in MTurk's Participation Agreement, though some of the information is not clear or misleading.
