I then added the three links they gave me to the disavow list and resubmitted for another reconsideration to remove the manual action.If google comes back with more unnatural links I can keep adding them to the disavow list and resubmitting, but for all I know google could have hundreds of links stored that are unnatural for our site and if I am only given 3 at a time and it takes around 10 days to receive each one the manual action on our site will take years to be lifted.I really made some bad mistakes when it comes to link wheels, article directories, article spinning....etc. I am working really hard to clean all the links up, have emailing tons of webmasters trying to get links removed and it seems like there is this list of inbound links that is not on the latest update on WMT (as I submitted my website directly after I received the list of inbound links from WMT) nor on other inbound link searches such as majesticSEO.I realize google updates the inbound links list, but I added the links to the disavow list almost immediately after receiving the list from WMT and put my site up for reconsideration right away. On top of that to go through thousands of links and pull out the few that are real inbound links is very time consuming.If more unnatural links keep getting added to my WMT inbound links list after I submit my site for reconsideration I am unsure of what I can do to remove the manual action?Any advice from anyone who has been in this situation would be greatly appreciated. I am extremely mad at myself for making such stupid mistakes with creating these unnatural inbound links and am very sorry. I would really appreciate any guidance on what I can do?Thank you very much in advance for your help! :)

While it's really important for the web-spam team when processing the reconsideration request to see significant effort put into resolving the issue at its roots (on those external sites), it can also be a good practice to at least have those sites listed in your disavow file in the meantime (use them in parallel, don't get bogged down with contact requests before adding them).
Sounds exactly like my battle now. I'm a in house SEO/Int. Marketer now dealing with a manual action from the old tactics they did before my time like you did.I spent WEEKS and WEEKS cleaning up links, contacting webmasters, etc. and documented it all in a very long reconsideration request. Each time I get these mystery 3 links like you are... of which I can't find using any good tools... it's driving me insane.My problem is, it's not a site wide manual action, but they slammed my website in the SERPS right after it arrived.... what the heck?
