I just received a wish list offer from a member. I accepted the offer and then went to their bookshelf to see if they had anything else I wanted.  A notice above their bookshelf said  This account is currently suspended or closed.

How can they offer me a book with a suspended or closed account?

It is possible that they listed the book and then the account was closed.

You can contact the PBS team and ask them to cancel the request and put you back at #1 so you don't have to wait it out and possibly miss a copy of your WL book.  They must have posted the book and then been suspended.

Thanks Jonnie and Sarah.  I immediately canceled the book request because it seemed like some "funny business" was going on.

I was the only wisher so I put it back on my wish list and I'm at no. 1 again.

It's probably as you say....they posted the book and then they were suspended.
