When this happens your advertisement may be temporarily suspended until we review it.

We check reported advertisements as quickly as we can. If we conclude that the advertisement hasn't broken any Posting Policies or Terms of Use we will activate the advertisement again promptly. Check back after a few hours to see if this is the case.

Advertisements either identified by our automated tools as inappropriate, that we then find do break our Posting Policies or Terms of Use will be removed from the site.

In most cases we email you to let you know when we have had to remove your advertisement. These emails sometimes get directed to junk folders so please look out for Fashion Underground emails. You may wish to add Fashion Underground to your safe senders list if you have one.

If you have checked out all of these possibilities and none of them apply to your advertisement then please let us know by clicking on "Contact Fashion Underground" located bottom of help pages and we'll be happy to help you out.
