I decided to log in to my MTurk account and see if there are any tasks I can do there. When I logged in I got this message: There is a problem with your Amazon Mechanical Turk account. This account has been suspended by the Amazon Mechanical Turk team. I haven't logged in to my MTurk account in a long time. Could that be the reason why my account was suspended? I never did anything wrong while I used the site. I wonder if I can sign up again.

Only Amazon can tell you why your account has been suspended. I suggest that you raise a query with support having carefully read their Terms of Service.

It’s an Amazon company. You do tasks there (they call them HITs), which pay. Some pay pennies while some pay dollars. Like you can have a task that will pay 10 cents, while another will pay close to $1 or even more. I remember one of the tasks I did there was transcribe receipts.

That's likely the reason. Many places will deactivate accounts no longer in use or suspend them. This is in case the person who owned the account unexpectedly passes away and someone else gets access to their account. You can probably appeal it and prove you are who you say you are.
