Many 72 hour warnings / Big delays at AVP1/ Issue with admitting fault.
1) A very high number of sellers are being asked for a POA to be submitted within 72 hours by the account health team or they will be suspended. You generally have more than 72 hours in this case so do not rush it if you’re up against the clock. They are focusing on inauthentic, condition and detail pager tampering. If you “Page tamper” for a legitimate reason it should not be a violation (ie change of your brand name), but for some reason, it’s hard to get those overturned. They want you to admit some kind of fault.
2) This is happening more frequently “We are writing to inform you that we received an order issued by a federal court that requires us to suspend your selling account and seize your funds. Items that infringe another party’s copyright, patent, trademark, design right, database right, or other intellectual property or other proprietary rights are prohibited. For more information on this policy, search on “Prohibited Content” in Seller Help.”

8) “Admitting fault”. Please be aware that Amazon generally wants you to admit fault and then provide corrective and proactive measures in a POA. Keep in mind if you ever need to go to Amazon using arbitration, whatever you admit to may be held against you. If you admit to counterfeit and then they hold funds, later on, they can say you once admitted counterfeiting so please keep that in mind.
