Rejected Sign Up

I signed up and got told "my application was rejected" with nothing but a vague bunch of statements of which none applied.

I signed up with the card I'm holding in my hand.
From my address where I'm sitting typing this post
Using that IP address linked to my account via my ISP.

And you basically outright accused me of being a fake account.

Care to explain?
