When it comes to buying and selling online, scammers and spammers can be a real threat. At Apartment Therapy's Bazaar, we go the extra step to enlist machine-learning software to maintain the security of the site and the privacy of our users.
Our fraud detection software monitors all user activity and assigns each user a fraud score based on their activity or unique user data. Once a user's fraud score reaches a certain level, they are automatically blacklisted/blocked from the site. Users who have been blocked are logged out of their account and are unable to log in while their account is blocked.
If your account was incorrectly blocked, contact customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org to authenticate your identity and whitelist your account.
