I used several operating systems on my Computer, Linux and two Windows
In Linux, I used the spoofing mac address But not In windows
Does this have anything with my Issue

As far as I know this shouldn't be a problem. SS shouldn't see your mac address anyway, only the IP. Unless there is something else going on. Does anyone else have access to your account?

Well it might be, maybe somehow they detected something fishy going on with your mac adresses and it raised a red flag for them, so they just disabled the account. I doubt they even elaborated, they just play safe and don't have time to investigate every such event, hence the paragraph in their tos about account disabling with no questions asked. I think...

As far as I know mac addresses aren't communicated unless there is an app installed on the client mac. Do mac users have to download an app from SS to communicate with the site? If it's just through browser, unless it's IE supposedly there isn't anything providing SS with this info.

You are right. I thought it's not usually done but possible to extract mac if wanted.

Mohamad, if you are using e-marketer services and he is so successful at selling your images, why don't you do all the sales from your own website? I mean, why would you want to give more than half of your money to an agency? If you made $800 over SS, then you could make almost $2000 playing solo.

... So, I've got a question ... Why the Mac spoofing and everything? Something seems fishy here, I'm not sure we're getting the full story.

It's just a traditional way to use a PC, is this important?
Spoof Mac address its like used several devices together, and I think SS can't read my mac address, it is a privacy

This is the full story
But as proverbs say, I'm still looking at my old book to understand what's going on
I mean, this has nothing to do with the story
But I am distracted. I do not know where I should start and what to look for

And If you have a question ask me :)
Thank you very much

How long did you have an account to get up to $800 in sales?

Thank you all again , and sorry again for my English

May be you are right, I really do not know what is going on, but the world is gives birth a lot of bad guys

But certainly this is not the only proposal
Because we do not have any details about what is really happened, all possibilities are possible

It's like a dead end, and I'm really sad  :(

Yes that's what happened, I got  $100 in three years and $ 700 in one month, this seems to be the problem
But I think it is not the great number that it makes them feel worried about me

Is this possibly the reason for my account being disabled?

They can not even know that I changed it
Even if they read my Mac address, it's like I've accessed their site from another computer

And another view that says maybe your suggestion is true, maybe

From $3 a month, to $700 a month... is going to raise some eyebrows.

Lots of possibilities on the scene  :-\
No one has the password, but what if my account is hacked and I do not know
If SS just gave me some details! Gosh  >:(

Yes, but this is not the property of banks  ;D
It's still a small thing

What would I do? Write a public message Hello! do not pay more than 3 USD Please?

Well there you go, you get $100 for 3 years, you pay some e-marketer, you get $700 in one month, I doubt that e-marketer is that good.
Were those $700 like 2800 subs or some fancy licenses?

U know what... whenever some dishonest guys got his account banned, the first thing they worried about is that they are unable to withdraw their remaining money. They don't care about their portfolio.

Let me tell you this. All serious and honest artists put pride in their portfolio and that's their number 1 priority. They wouldn't worry too much about what's left unpaid.

I did not understand well what you meant
But it was $ 700 the on demand and enhanced downloads

Perhaps this person was evil, in all cases I think the issue was necessary to discuss it or even a warning not to repeat it, not kick me

Yes, you are right
The first goal reason I joined in SS is to earn some money I am doing a worker in return for that
I care about two things people love my portfolio and also collect more and more money, the art equal money its not free
But let us say that the winds do not come as the ships need, as wisdom says

And I thank the god because I am still patient until I create more creativity in order to earn money from another place
We artists are human, we not live just for brag :)

Let me Thank you and sorry for my English forgive me :)

Was your e-marketer using stolen credit cards or fake accounts?

Maybe
But he told me that he just shared links in some way adsense, ads, groups and pages such things drew people's attention to my images, just

What we derive from this great debate
Do not believe for electronic marketers
Do not earn more money than usual or close your account :) ?

It's like buying a stolen car, you might be innocent but police still takes away the car. SS is not going to waste their resources at worldwide investigation and trial of what actually happened, they just cut their ties with suspicious contributor and carry on. Maybe if it was some really high profile contributor they would calculate if it would payoff to investigate.

As with anything, buy goods and services only from reputable sellers and providers.

I'm pretty sure that's the indicator of what happened. There is no way the sales can go so high over the period of one month with an unchanged portfolio after years of slow performance.

I don't know what the con is, but there are possibilities. A simple one that crosses my mind is that someone might have hacked your account, changed the payment destination, used stolen credit cards numbers to buy your pics with the goal of pocketing the laundered proceeds. Then red flags were raised, SS blamed it on you. Account closed. Did you get any notifications of changed payment options?

Or that was your "e-marketer" who used stolen credit cards and then he would ask you to share the profit. Did he approach you first?
