I'm left totally confused by this one , I went to check facebook marketplace to see if anything new had been posted and my account is now disabled and I cannot log in or view the site . it appears to have been disabled on Monday

which is odd cause on Monday I bought a bottle from a lady up north using that site , to me it seemed like a rather uneventful purchase . a week or 2 ago I sent her a brief msg expressing interest in buying it but I lived about an hour south of her so I'd have to wait a few days before I could make it up that way

on Monday I drove up that way and picked it up , she wasn't even there an older man handed it to me and I gave him the $ . all messages exchanged were brief and professional in nature and she seemed glad I was buying it .

I also used that site to msg a local antique vendor who had some bottles for sale , I bought the no city 7 up from him on Friday . he seemed very professional and replied back , felt he perhaps hoped I 'd buy more bottles from him than I did

there the only 2 people I've messaged on that site in the last few days and only ones I've bought anything from recently

so left perplexed as to why either of them would of reported my account ( which was not in my name but used a local name and term " finds " , was really no content there I used it to view site and msg people on it . haven't had an actual account on facebook in a few years

here is the odd msg I got when I tried to view the site earlier tonight

all I can think of is there was some sort of misunderstanding

I had told her I'd be there after lunch but I got to her city early and was nothing to do so I went there early and no one was home.

but went back after lunch and picked up the bottle and paid , they said nothing else to me

trying to make sense of this one and why she would of been so upset with me to report my account and have it canceled over an uneventful and legitimate purchase

I was never really into the whole facebook thing , though the marketplace was neat as it had a lot of different bottles posted from different areas , I could look thru rather easily

all I can think of is they developed a bad case of sellers regret after I left after picking up the bottle . did get a great druggist bottle from Canada from them , I paid the full price they asked for ( which wasn't very much ) and would of been willing to pay more if that was the issue

they must of assumed I knew more about bottles and that if I was willing to drive an hour north to pick up 1 little bottle it must of been rare and worth way more than they asked for

but seems off that they'd go as for as to report my account , wasn't anything wrong with my messages to them , brief and professional , no grounds for being removed from that site

I lost my Farcebook account that I used for my collecting 15+ months ago and I never got it recovered. Farcebook are a bunch of idiots, are liars and comparable to Big Brother. I'd say there is a special place in hell reserved for some of the execs.

I'm confused by what I did or why my account was reported as violating the rules

all I can think of is one of the people I contacted recently reported it cause it wasn't in my real name . but not sure why either of them would of been upset at me enough to want to see it taken down

it had no content and was only being used to view and contact people on marketplace , I'm not sure why that wasn't allowed under there rules

its true that I did get this bottle for a low price but I paid the price listed in there ad , I'm not an appraiser and this bottle is not from Ontario , its from another province so to get its full value you'd have to find a collector from its home area not here

all I can think of is they decided it was worth way more money after I left and were upset with me for buying it and then decided to report my account afterwords as a sort of way to get revenge

although not sure why my account violated the rules , maybe facebook felt it was off cause it had no content and no real name and being used to contact sellers but I had never sold anything on marketplace so I never had any listings there

If they were upset why didn't they contact you directly? I believe it is a mistake and if not, what Uncle Bruce said pretty much sums it up quite well.
