My friend had a problem, his account was suspended and after he contacted the support that answered this way:

“At this time, we have reviewed your account and have decided to release the account to you. The serial code has been permanently disabled as a result of the purchase using a fraudulent credit or debit card or stolen PayPal account.

In order to regain access to the game, you must re-purchase Guild Wars 2 again and apply a new, valid code to your account. To ensure this does not happen in the future, please purchase the game from one of our authorized retail partners https://buy.guildwars2.com/retailers or purchase directly from our website https://buy.guildwars2.com/. "

The question is: how can he use a new serial code with that account?

Thank you!

Yes, he can. That is why the agent was careful to say the account is “released.” Not all closed accounts can be released; we must take care that people who knowingly defraud the company are not able to add another, probably-sketchy code to continue trying to play. But in the case of your friend, he may have purchased through a third-party seller who was involved in the defrauding. As that is the case, we would welcome your friend back to the game, but naturally he must add a valid serial code.

Edit: Confirmed by Payments Team.

Thanks for this info. The team is going to take a peek at these and see what they can do to open that up for your friends.
