Cannot believe this: Adobe abruptly cancelled my CC All Apps subscription because of suspected fraud — immediately after I redeemed 3 legitimate redemption codes. I had 5 YEARS of credit on my account, now all gone. I've spend the last 3 hours on Adobe chat and phone. They can see the missing 5 years, but are telling me they technically cannot restore it. I will need to buy it again. Same message in chat, on the phone, with supervisors and their supervisors.
Most of the codes I redeemed were purchased direct from Adobe years ago. The rest were from authorized resellers. But even if I were to provide Adobe with these receipts & codes, they tell me there's nothing they can do to restore those 5 years. I don't get it!
not much can be done in the forums where we're users and it sounds like you've already contacted more than one adobe employee and heard the same thing.

David, I am sorry that the previous subscriptions under the account were invalidated. Please use the steps listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/customer-support-portal.html to make any necessary updates to your active support case ADB-29625259-Q5Z9. The case is currently pending your response and will automatically close if we do not receive a response.
I do appreciate that this is a frustrating experience. I would encourage you to consider using a plan managed directly on Adobe.com when the current paid plan through a redemption code ends.

I feel your pain. I've had a similar issue recently which I shared in this forum earlier. It is clearly not appreciated legitimate redemption codes are added to a very long running CC membership. Despite not being a rant or against het community guidelines, that post was removed.
My Creative Cloud subscription got cancelled just like that. Reason: The Adobe Genuine Team found 'fraudulant behaviour' being detected with my account. No prior notice and no possibility of rebuttal. Poof, everything inaccessible.
First thing I thought: My account has been hacked into. But this turned out to not be the case.
What else? The only thing I could think of - but of course the reason for cancelling has never been disclosed to me - is that I had a couple of Logitech products (2 MX Keys, 1 MX Keys Mini and 2 MX Master devices) for which I was eligable to get 1 free month of CC, 5 months in total. For those products I had to upload my invoices (from Amazon and another company) to a Dutch company designated by Logitech to check and give out an Adobe partner offer link for each eligable product. With each link 1 month could be added to my CC subscription. Everything worked fine but without contacting me first 'The Adobe Genuine Team' pulled the plug on my subscription... and the remaining couple of free months. Is that even legal when having a running subscription contract?
btw I have been a paying customer for CC since 2014 and had software licenses on Adobe products starting in 1994 (PS 3.0). I have also been a Photoshop beta tester for several years. Yes, I am that old. 😉
I can prove the 5 months to be legitimate with invoices, partner offer registration approval e-mails and their corresponding e-mails with the partner offer links.
Yet, according to the chat agent, the only option was starting a new subscription for which I was offered a discount. Still does not feel right, though as I did nothing wrong.
You can't talk to anyone about this, you can't e-mail anyone about this and the chat agent - although helpful with adding a new membership to my account - can't do anything but forwarding our conversation to somewhere 'upstream' to have a look at the issue. Still waiting for a response... and an apology. Nothing sofar.
