They cannot say you why it is blocked

Recently, my aliexpress account was deactivated. I am a buyer from EU never had any dispute, bought dozen of small items etc. When contacted Aliexpress they sent me to ALibaba, then after talki

ng with robot, robot decide to switch me to a human. I contacted customer service, and got a reply, again redirecting me to that form intended for sellers, and had to remind them again that I do not run a selling business, I am exclusively a buyer.

Next came the strange request: I must send them a copy of my ID, be it a driver license or passport.

Some Chinese rules , they do not have standard for civilized world.

I am not comfortable with proceeding, and told them so, and asked why my account was deactivated. They said they cannot tell me why. I asked why they need a copy of my ID since it wasn't even required in the first place to open the account as a buyer. they couldn't tell me that either.

This person wrote the review because of "account decativation without teling me why" of aliexpress account from AliExpress. Reviewer claimed that he or she lost $12345 and wants AliExpress to "keep civilized world standardds".

The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.

I also blocked the account without reason, support does not help me, I think, a bunch of morons, often done shopping and I was treated as ***.

My account was closed yesterday on aliexpress, aliexpress gave me no reason now I cannot even get in touch with your customer service. If aliexpress slams the door in front of their customers for no reason, and they think they are going to take on eBay, Amazon, and now Walmart marketplace, they better think twice.

Americans respond to the customer service, not someone who treats them like a number.

It makes me feel like aliexpress only comes here to grab the American dollar with icy cold fingers so I guess I will just have to give aliexpress the finger

My account also mysteriously deactivated -- and I have had NO returns or refunds.

That's fine, I will deal with Banggood or Gearbest or any of the others that have given me good service in the past.

I'am Canadian buyer.

From November I ask a lot off refund, because I never received the items.

In March 3 month later, my account is blocked by Aliexpress, because I used a few refund for the product never received.

Honestly, Aliexpress and a lot off Chinese seller are not honest !

Customer representative don't have a honest values.

Alibaba is such a pain in ***, arrogant company full with fake products, copied products. Theyvget rich from fake and they will die fake.

They tend to protect fake companies because they build their wellness on fake.

There thousands of thousands of fake business license from Chinese companies on Alibaba Why don't you go to check on those mother *** Chinese fake companies ? People have registered on Alibaba for over 15 years then you come out with nonsense talking bulllshit about security Have you ever asked any proof of ids, any supporting documents during registration?????

Very intrusive proof of ID from a Chinese based company.

Very disrespectful (They treat you as a number) and cold in their costumer dealings. They would not allow me to pay for an item I bought from one of their sellers even after submitting all kinds of sensitive personal info.

If they think that they are gonna be the biggest and best think beating and surpassing Ebay, Amazon, Paypal, they are in another reality realm, it's not happening, not in a million years. I am very pleased with Ebay, Amazon and Paypal, I can even buy a gift card and pay with that in Amazon, also Ebay, Paypal is awesome so why will Aliexpress go out of their way to make it so immensely hard to pay a seller for their goods if they want to compete with Paypal and the others?....puzzling....so at the end they ask me to submit other much more sensitive proof of ID, ie: Copy of driver license or passport, photo copy of credit card( front & back), bank statement as if the other two were not enough already, so I got very ill about it, because neither of the other American based companies had ever asked me for such sensitive and intrusive personal info.

So this is part of the exchange I had with one of their costumer service preson/robot?:
