Suspicious Activity Hold and Special offers

Yes, I have emailed guidelines with no response yet. My funds have been put on hold for “suspicious activity” and it seems that this is happening to a lot of people who aren’t getting answers, see here:

I just started the special offer campaign, and I was feeling very hopeful about building my Patreon base and working with the advice from the Patreon team but now I just feel sick to my stomach. I need that money and answers. I’ve been on Patreon for years and I haven’t changed any of my banking info. What’s the deal? Should I stop my promo?


Still no one from Patreon has contacted me. This is really stressful for someone who depends on this revenue to survive. I think I figured it out, i was giving away one of my paintings every month and I used a random number generator to pick who got one. I thought that was being fair but I did some research and found out it was against the rules of Patreon. I didn’t realize this when I started doing it. I stopped and notified all my patrons that I can no longer do it and that I will find a way to provide them with more benefits. I deleted all the posts that mentioned it and posted that i can’t do it anymore. I just don’t understand why no one from the Patreon Team has bothered to contact me. I feel so alone on this forum. I was simply trying to give my art to the people who love it. If anyone knows of a way I can do this while following the rules, please let me know.

And Patreon, please, please release my funds.

Hello! I have recently opened my patreon and today is the first time that I find where you see your total balance and where it gives you the option of manual transfer or transfer on the 5th every month, I am very new and I still do not understand the correct knowledge, but I saw a message that you have found suspicious activity in my account and that my money was blocked … I don’t know what could be happening, I just opened a patreon and put it on my networks so that people would be interested in my content, what has passed? And how do you Solved? Thanks in advance!
