    I tried to logon to ad*se*nse as usual only to be advised that there was no ad*se*nse account associated with my email address. I logged into the accounts page of goggle and then clicked on to the ad*se*nse link, the result was that the ad*se*nse login page kept reloading on a continuous loop. I've cleared cookies, and changed IP, and tried from a different PC. No change.

    I can't help but think that it is the month end and goggle has deliberately waited until this time before closing my account so they don't have to pay the considerable amount they owe me.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Haha you got robbed buddy. Google did that to me as well, then a couple of days later I got an email saying that my adsense account was shut down. Good luck! Time to find a new method of income.

    Obviously something dubious was going on? Approx. how much do they owe you? If you didnt breach TOS e-mail them but I doubt you'll have much luck, it's like they say in css ''VAC don't make mistakes''

    They owe me $1500. The only dubious aspect that I know of was that the vast majority of traffic (to an otherwise legitimate site) came from Y!A. Other than that, I really don't know. They even closed my Adwords account, and apparently I owe them $3.50 from many moons ago, I haven't even used it for 18 months.

    So, Ads*ense has PAID me for August, and my ads are still live, although all of the other problems still remain. Do we still think the account is closed?

    Well, if you can not log in then consider your account as closed or hacked.

    Why don't you email directly to Adsense staff and ask them what's going on? ;)

    I was promoting adsense through Yahoo answers as well and I got warned by adsense. So, I am redirecting traffic to adsense page by adding one more page at my site, That way I can hide my referring URL.

    Denny :)

    That's exactly what happened to me when the f**cked me. Granted it was on $30, but
    2 days later I got the dreaded "account has been closed due to suspicious click activity".

    Hope that's not the case with you.

    This is what is really weird. I have put in a query, and a woman replied, she gave me an email address and said that the Adsense account is associated with this email address. The thing is, I have never seen it before. I told her this, I said 'check your data, in two years I have never used this email address to log in'

    She replied back saying that I logged on yesterday with it!!?? Also, she said that no other email address has ever been associated with the account other than the bullshit one she gave me.

    Also, I went to the page where you can ask for a new Adsense login if you have lost your password. When I enter my usual email, it says 'no such account'. NO great surprise there, but when I enter the bullshit email address, it also says 'No such account' How can ther be no such account when the woman form Adsense has told me that the email address is the correct login for my Adsense account?

    There's more....
    Other than responses to my queries, I have received no email from Adsense warning of transgressions, or telling me that my account has been closed. Then again, if they don't acknowledge that my email address even exists, they're not likey to, are they?

    Also, if I log in to my gmail account first, and then go to Adsense, the Adsense login page keeps loading up in a perpetual loop. Now that surely shows that there is something amiss?

    There is something wrong for sure...

    First of all, your account has to attach with Gmail...So adsense staff can not tell you that you account is not associated with any other email address.

    Secondly, do you remember what is your primary email address with which you initially signed up with adsense? They should have send you a notice at your primary email address. Also, check all emails for the email address which adsense staff is talking about.

    Try to contact them with with your primary email account or with your Gmail account.

    Post your query in Adsense forum if you do not hear back from them soon. ;)

    Looks like I didn't make myself clear enough:
    The Adsense lady says the account IS asscociated with a gmail address, and she even gave me the gmail address, but I have never seen it before.

    Well yes, I remember, in fact I was still using the primary email address to log in with until these problems arose, but I have received no notice. (I assume you mean an 'account closed' notice?)
    Nope, nothing there.

    I even have an email sent to my Adsense gmail address about 18 months ago confirming that my bank details have been added to the Adsense account. This (to me at least) proves that I am genuine, but I can't get any bastard at goggle to listen to me!!

    That is all I have been using. (both).

    That is next on my list:) Now I cannot even send queries to Adsesnse because you have to eneter your email account in the text box of the query, and when I hit 'send' the page says 'no email address associated with this account'.

    For some reason (I use firefox) sometimes, if I go to adsense.google.com to login I can't it just sits there trying to load adsense page.

    BUT. If I close browser, go to google.com, click my account THEN click the adsense links, it logs in fine.

    Might just be bugged like mine gets sometimes it's really wierd. I can NOT login ever to adsense at the adsense subdomain

    Yep, I've had that problem too in the past. It lasted for about three months until one day it suddenly statrted working again. This, however is something different. I get the continual pageload thing by doing as you describe - log in to goggle first and then click on Adsense.

    Wow....it looks like Google stole all your money...

    There is no need to use there contact us box again. Just reply to email address through which your are communicating with Adsense lady or email at adsense-support@google.com . Make sure you provide as much info. as you can including your google adsense ID and website details where you are adding adsense code.

    Opening a new account will be a good idea as well and I hope it works for you.

    Funny you should say that, here's the strange part.....they just paid me for August, which was $500 of the $1500 dollars. Now, if my account was closed, would they still be paying me? I think not!

    That's part of the problem unfortunately. She replied twice and then there was just silence. I can't think of any other way to contact Google - other than the Adsense board.

    Thanks for your input on this Dennyboy, it's appreciated. Interestingly, when you open a new account there is a message that says if you have lost both username and password, apply for a new account - which goggle will reject - but as part of the rejection process there is apparently an opportunity to have your old Adsense account closed down and re-assigned to your current gmail account. Hmmmmm maybe this is a way out of the situation for me? We will see......

    I hope you receive money for month of September.

    Also, you can not make that adsense lady silent. Email her every three days until you do not hear from her :D

    Sorry Dennyboy, that's what I meant when I said there was silence. It's not me that's silent - it's her. She doesn't reply to my emails any more.

    What I am saying is that it is the one and only 'indescretion' I made. Other than that, my operation is WH.

    Of course, there is a significant difference between posting 10 - 20 answers per day with the odd well-placed link in your answers, and spamming the bollocks out of Y!A with a bot ;):D, but even under these circumstances it would be extremely disappointing to learn that my account had been closed for precisely this activity.

    Currently - as you can probably glean from the thread - I am not so sure the account has been closed, there is clearly some sort of skullduggery going on, and I haven't yet ruled out the possibility of my account being hacked, but as yet I am not certain exactly what is happening and why.

    To be honest my greatest concern is the hacking thing. If someone has hacked my account then they will have access to my bank account details.
