Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

From the looks of it, they are banning your alt Amazon accounts because one of them was found to be repeatedly trying to loan stolen Amazon Gift Cards onto them.

What exactly is the issue? If you were using stolen AGC on one account that caused them to close that account, don't you think they would close your other accounts as well? From the looks of it, they got it right considering that you got the email.

so anyone can give you stolen gift cards.

where's the evidence?

theres 4 differnet gift cards; they haven't explained anything if any one specific card had a problem with it.

I have cash paid receipts and they didn't say ANYTHING about them
You are right that anyone can give you stolen gift cards, and that is exactly why you would only purchase gift cards from reputable sources/people. As I have mentioned several times above, I am not sure what you expected when you were getting large discounts (larger then other cash methods) for these gift cards.

I am not sure what exactly the person who sold you the gift cards did, however it would be possible that they reported the AGC as being stolen, or they could have paid with cash, then immediately asked to return the gift cards and paid with a stolen credit card, or something similar.

They said this issue must be responded by an account specialist who you cannot talk to on the phone they only email 'within 24 hours later' which is always 48 hours or more

Good points; but that would then point to an inefficiency in their system (every currency sucks compared to bitcoin); because they were all redeemed correctly and showed in amazon balance. I never got an email or message that "there was a problem with X gift card"

--snip--
4. Use of Amazon.com Balance or any Gift Card in Violation of these Terms and Conditions.
We reserve the right to void Gift Cards or any other component of your Amazon.com Balance, close customer accounts and bill alternative forms of payment if we suspect that a Gift Card is obtained, used or applied to an Amazon.com account (or your Amazon.com Balance is applied to a purchase) fraudulently, unlawfully or otherwise in violation of these terms and conditions.
It is in their TOS that you must agree to when you apply a gift card balance that Amazon has the right to void a GC (and/or close your account) if they suspect it was obtained fraudulently.

It is up to you to verify that it was in fact obtained via legit means.

I was also ask you for the nth time, what exactly were you expecting when you purchased $1,000 worth of AGC at a 20%+ discount? Did you think that someone was just being really generous to you and wanted you to have that $200?

I would definitely contact amazon though and share with them where you purchased those gift cards.

Why to buy Amazon gift cards that are stolen? Some just manage to get these stolen gift cards to work while some don't. Only those who are selling genuine AGCs via websites like cardpool and here are genuine sellers else don't buy gift cards for 20-30% of the face value. Don't expect them to work then.

Sorry but i sell agc on 30% off usually. Why? because i live in europa, and i receive amazon gift card (for .com) from my CPA network.
I'm sure that some guys sell stolen gift card, but in my case my location sucks big time, and if i want to order something from amazon.com, i must deal with customs, pay 10% duty fee and 20% VAT.
Not to mention notarized letter and so on bullshit. And the fact that on 50$ amazon mini sound box, i paid additional 50$ for shipping.
Hope that i makes sense now, why some guys sell their amazon gift card on a good discount.
