Hi @Too_Techy. If you are getting the message that your Amazon account is already associated with a Ring account, then it means you may have already linked your Amazon account with another Ring account. Double check any other possible Ring account you could have made before to see if it is linked there. If you do find it, you will want to [unlink it from your Amazon account](https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034187232-Linking-Your-Ring-Account-to-Your-Amazon-Account). Also, try linking your Amazon account with Ring on Ring.com to see if that makes a difference. If you have tried these steps and are still having the same concern, you will have to continue working with our support team for further assistance. You can also reach out to our support team on Facebook by sending them a private message to @Ring.

Tried all of those steps multiple times. Called Ring twice. Escalated twice. The last time I called was a few weeks ago. They're still trying to figure it out....Oiee!!

Update: Ring support has stated they've contacted Amazon and found my account is linked to another Amazon account email ending with ".temp" without the quotes. Note: I own the “Domain Name” so I know it’s my account. In short, I couldn’t have done what they said I did. > I did research and found that the end of the email is called a Top-level domain (TLD) name. [https://moz-static.moz.com/learn/seo/Domains-page/_large/domain-description-image.png] > > The .temp TLD is not in the list of allowed TLDs according to WIKI. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains > > According to Amazon you must verify your email prior to registering account. I sent emails to Ring support about this and am no longer getting response. **Does anyone know how I can escalate this?** I'm no expert, but it sounds like there was some sort of synchronization error that caused a temp version of my account to be created.

FYI: After 9 months with technical support, it was escalated to Amazon (finally found a support person who was on it). They asked for details about the devices and after several weeks it's been resolved by having Amazon delete the tmp accounts.

@Too_Techy. I suggest contacting our [support team](https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/213608406#callus) by giving them a call once more since your emails are no longer being responded too. If you have worked with them before, there should be a ticket the new support agent can review to help escalate your concern.
