I have received yesterday, 16 February 2021, the following e-mail:
We've processed your cancellation request. Your service will end on 16-February-2021 (PT).
After that, your account will revert to a basic, free level of membership. Free memberships retain limited access to Creative Cloud services and 2GB of complimentary online storage. (You may need to delete files to meet your new storage limitations.)
Keep exploring Creative Cloud, and we wish you well in your future endeavors.
The interesting part is that I have not requested the cancellation of my CC plan. In august 2020, I ordered the CC 1 year plan and was not expecting an e-mail like this anytime soon.
What can I do in this situation?

Edit: I have been waiting for 2 hours after I was transferred to an agent that can assist me better.
Samething happened to me as well. I can't connect to support waiting for like 45min...
I have contacted another agent, and now Im on hold again...
Do you have the same problem with your adobe cc 1 year plan being cancelled without your request?
I had 2 accounts both of them are disabled. I don't know why I cant reach to support...
Sorry to hear and regarding reaching to support, I am still trying after 6 hours. Nothing happened
my chatbox is closed by itself i dont know why...

I have an idea, I wonder if anyone with this problem is willing to share if they purchased this CC plan from outside Adobe, and what they paid for it?
There are multiple reports of such cancellations today. I advised contacting support to them and the response that some of the guys got was that their license was purchased from the gray market and hence was canceled. So folks if you buy outside of Adobe do make sure it's an authorized seller else this fate can befall anytime, don't fall for offers that look too good.
Indeed the license was bought from outside adobe but then, why would adobe authorise that in the first place? After activating my key code (thus being verified by adobe), I didnt think that there will be any kind of problem.
"Indeed the license was bought from outside adobe but then, why would adobe authorise that in the first place?"
They don't. There has been an epidemic of organised fraud going on. I read that in one model, stolen credit card details are used to pay for subscriptions, which are resold to unsuspecting people looking for Creative Cloud for less than $600 a year. All starts well. After a few weeks, sometimes months, the card theft is noticed, and the payments are stopped. So the contract is cancelled; meanwhile the company has closed and is running the fraud for a new set of customers; sometimes using the credit card numbers of the last batch of people who wanted a bargain. This is just one of many ways in which "cheap" software sellers are stealing from both Adobe and their customers at the same time.
Never thought there was such a big operation going on.
That's just great...
The reason is that such licenses are issued to entities for special purposes under special conditions of usage. Like an educational institute, now if such a license is sold to a normal person and Adobe gets to know about it then it will be canceled, So the crux is that even though the license might be a valid one but the condition of its use is violated and hence it is illegal
Although I do not understand why adobe has this kind of message: We've processed your cancellation request. Your service will end on 16-February-2021 (PT), as there wasn't any request made. Why this approach?
Just receive this from adobe help centre
Hi! Thank you for contacting Adobe Genuine. After analysis, it appears that the subscription access has been shut off for the product. it shows that the Redemption code is fraudulently obtained.
I bought it and even have an invoice.
"it shows that the Redemption code is fraudulently obtained. I bought it and even have an invoice."
It is good that Adobe are being definite about this. You should note that they are saying fraud has been committed, but NOT that YOU did the fraud. Organized crime has now moved into providing counterfeit, fraudulent software in a big way. Your issue is with whoever sold it to you (though the chances are they will now be out of business and opened up under a new name). In most countries, if you pay for something in good faith, which later turns out to be stolen, you end up with nothing: the victim of the criminal, not the owner.
received this email from Adobe
This email is to notify you that the Department of Education has migrated all Adobe accounts to direct email access using your school account, as a result your access to this subscription has been blocked. Please contact IT Support for further details and access to your Adobe software. If you do not belong to a school and have questions about the legitimacy of your redemption code learn more here.
