    The first time I published two decent youtube videos for my client but I selected same thumbnail of beautiful models for those videos. Never got any warning but directly account suspension.

    I've discussed this in Youtube product forum and this issue only came out.

    What is the blackhat way of handling this situation? If my review request is denied what's going to happen!!

    Kinda of strict policy like that of Adsense.

    Are you sure you got suspended because of this thumbnail only?

    Sadly, when your account is banned there is not much you can do.

    I think that most blackhat thing you can do is creating 10 accounts in place of one banned.

    If the thumb is not related to your video, YouTube will not let you appeal, so better way to put it in your video and make it your thumbnail, then you can appeal for this

    But I believe your account is not suspended by ONLY thumbnail. Check for other community guidelines!

    You would only receive a warning for putting thumbnails not in your video. You are probably promoting something which is not allowed and breaking their TOS. You may try to appeal but chances of getting your account back is almost minimal.
