Dear ,
Your Amazon Seller account has been deactivated and your listings have been removed in accordance with Section 3 of Amazon’s Business Solutions Agreement.
  A list of these items is at the end of this email. Funds available in your account will be withheld. If you have FBA inventory of the items causing "inauthentic" complaints, they are currently ineligible for removal.
Why is this happening?
You have not sent us the information we requested in order to address the complaints we received about the authenticity of the items listed at the end of this email. In order to ensure that customers can shop with confidence on Amazon, we take “inauthentic” complaints seriously. The sale of counterfeit products on Amazon is strictly prohibited.
You can learn more about Amazon’s policies regarding the sale of counterfeit items in Seller Central Help:

How do I reactivate my account?
To reactivate your selling account, please send us the following information:
1) Copies of invoices or receipts from your supplier issued in the last 365 days for the ASINs listed below
-- These documents should reflect your sales volume during the last 365 days.
-- Please include contact information for your supplier, including name, phone number, address, and website. We may contact your supplier to verify the documents. We will maintain the confidentiality of your supplier contact information.
-- You may remove pricing information, but the rest of the document must be visible. For ease of our review, you may highlight or circle the ASIN(s) under review.
2) A plan of action that explains:
-- The issue(s) that you believe caused the complaints about the authenticity of your items.
-- The actions you have taken to resolve the issue(s) that caused the complaints about the authenticity of your items.
-- The steps you have taken to prevent future complaints about the authenticity of your items.
When creating your plan:
--Review your communications from buyers to better understand why the customer perceived your items to be inauthentic, and provide an explanation for the issues that led to complaints about the authenticity of your items.
--Be clear, concise, and as specific as possible. Focus on the facts and events that led to the issue rather than providing an introduction of your product, business, or customer. Remove other questions or references to ongoing support cases from your submission.
--Do not limit your plan to issues with specific orders. Instead, focus on the general practices you will adopt to prevent this type of issue in the future, considering the following questions:
--Sourcing: Are you sourcing the product from a trusted supplier that sells authentic items?
--Listing: Is the product accurately described on Amazon? Have you ensured that there is no ambiguity and the customer is well informed?
--Packaging: Is the product in its original packaging as listed on Amazon?
--Shipping: Have you taken all appropriate steps and quality checks to ensure that the product is stored, packed, and shipped appropriately, and will not be damaged when shipped?
--Review your communications, reviews, and feedback from buyers to better understand the issues.
--Be as specific as possible in your plan.
--Do not limit your plan to issues with specific orders.
You can only send .pdf, .jpg, .png, or .gif files. These documents must be authentic and unaltered.
