API Auth Flow - why am I getting account not found errors?

Hi, I've got a sandbox app running. In my auth flow, I've received my auth code and am trying to exchange it for a token.

I have verified that my app is set up to accept authorization code auth flow.

But, when I make my request, I get an

"Account does not exist", "errors" : [ { "errorCode" : "OAU-222", "message" : "Account does not exist" } ] }"

However, I'm using the same client_id as I provided for the auth code, the one listed under sandbox in my app settings. This account should exist?

The url I'm sending the request to:

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

Could be perhaps you are using a different sandbox number. Could you clear the cache in the redirect window and use the Sandbox Number that you are assigned to login?

If you are still getting the same error, Could you please submit a help ticket with the following details:

1.) Sandbox Number
