If you're just testing triggers etc and don't want to risk seeing your balance go in 1000 rapid accidental triggers. Try moving all but a tenner to a different wallet. It's easier than moving it to and from the bank.

Were you able to get them to quantify your breach, do you know what the parameters are so that it doesn't happen again?

No I did ask but all they did was send me the standard set of questions which I duly answered.

A couple of weeks ago my account was restricted. I had been running automation ideas in practice mode.

After contacting Betfair and answering their questions my account was unblocked.

Since then I have stopped running all automation in practice mode and just watched a few tennis markets each day in live mode. I was making a few notes and getting my files ready to give it a go live.

Today I have been restricted again!

I suppose I should have placed one or two £2 back and lays just to keep them happy.

I feel like withdrawing my funds and closing my BF account.

quick question. are you using streaming or polling on your session?? my gut feel is that you may be using polling, rather than streaming as polling places a bigger burden on the bf servers. when you opt for streaming, all betfair see is the login and not the data downloading as this is working on websockets, rather than activelly pulling the data down.

i may of course be wrong - hope you get it sorted again anyway, and yes, you should make use of the market, even for a few £2 bets per day whilst testing/viewing.

Can you withdraw your funds once your account is blocked ?????

You must be able to. They can stop you from using the exchange but I'm sure they can't legally keep your money!
