Right now you are "residing" in Australia. Were your other accounts approved while you were over there? Whats so hard to understand?

yes all my accounts have been approved, with me currently joining the site with an Australian IP
but there denying this one, i cannot beleive it, they said they wouldnt tolerate spoofing, i wonde if that was an auto reply message,
because i dont even know what IP spoofing is,
my ds and mp3 account has been approved through centric

anyone got some advice, with how i can clear this up?

Well, it can't hurt to email them again. I would suggest being very very polite while explaining your situation. Getting angry will make the rep reading your explanation that much less willing to help you out. I would also suggest offering to do whatever it takes on your part to prove to them that you are, indeed, a US resident and have not particpated in IP spoofing. Good luck.

good news i emailed them again
they approved, thankfully they listen,

but it is annoying to be accused of IP spoofing the first time

Great to hear!!! As for the accusation you should keep it all in perspective. These sites have to be very strict, etc on their rules in order to weed out the people who are really trying to screw them over. I wouldn't take it personally. What matters now is that you got approved and that they listened.

Glad to hear this as I am in the same situation. I'm a US resident currently browsing in Oz, but all my shipping and CC billing details and such are in the US. )
