These larger tech firms are consolidating and often have market monopoly. They often don't care when your account is suspended due to their own erroneous fraud detection systems. They would rather have 2 innocent people lose their livelihood than check on 500 fraud cases.

I imagine these destroy a livelihood around the globe every 60 seconds:

"I lost my Adsense account because someone in India clicked on my ad?"

"I lost my Amazon merchant account because of my 'suspicious' credit card?"

"Uber suspended me after someone threw up in my car?"

"Why am I suspended? I sent the package?"
