I've never heard of anyone's account being suspended, Lyn! I went to mine and tried to view your boards and see your photo there but, when I click on your profile, it takes me back to mine - weird!

I found this link to resolve Pinterest issues from a SM site. You'll have to let us know how you resolve this.

I seldom use it.  I robo-post articles and go through the super tedious process to upload house photos with it.  I've had minimal traffic from there (can probably count my pinterest visitors on one hand).  Might just shut it down and just keep it out there for backlinks.

 Pinterest is logging me in as two different users at the same time, and taking me around in circles.  They are having issues.

Hope you got this resolved Lyn, but I have not been on Pinterest in months, maybe a year.    Did not find it helping my business.

I have never heard of that either. It isn't right that someone can do that to you and wrong that customer service isn't responding.
