I have now waited 6 days as of today the 26th January 2021 and have not had a single reply after various calls & messages sent I got sent the same text above when I asked! This is absolutely unbelievable in these times my account gets locked and I have no access to my funds. How am I supposed to run my business if my account gets locked and I’m constantly checking my emails and messages in the app for no reply! It’s a complete joke I am furious right now that I haven’t been sent a reply as to what to do! And my account hasn’t been unlocked I am really not happy with the services I have been provided with along with customer service I have received!

I would like an update and have my account unblocked please this is causing serious stress every day that nothing has been done why is it taking so long!!! I can’t run a business like this…

I am very unhappy right now and would please please like this resolved!
