    Well here i go, I don't post much on blackhat but recently i have been reading and posting more, Found this forum for adwords and must post!

    I am on my 4th adwords account just been suspended...

    I used to have one running for around 2 years without getting suspended spending way in advance of £40,000 So i was a good customer, Few things went wrong i agree but they would not let me back into the account to resolve the issues,

    got a couple more running a few weeks later it was not long until they hit me down again!

    This is week i have been giving it another go! Got my ads online, went offline, and on again! i suspect this is the auto review algorithm BUT then all of a sudden a suspicious competitor's ip visited my site... Checked a few pages and BOOM! mountain view on within 2 minutes... Then all traffic gone down! No emails from adword's only one to tell me my ads are active, No welcome email even. So i believe i was "reported" although the same site was accepted previously just a slight change of template,

    Google are now claiming

    Your account is suspended We've identified suspicious behavior in the payment activity of this or your other AdWords accounts. To help prevent any unauthorized activity, we suspended your AdWords accounts.


    I have set the account up with automatic payments with a card never used online let alone adwords!!

    Why have i seen this? Possibly a geo ip issue?

    My ads are still approved, just my keywords wont trigger them so i believe the site is okay, It must be the account,

    HOW CAN I GET AROUND THIS!? I AM LOSING TO MUCH MONEY...

    Thank you,

    Google said it's your payments activities!
    so it must of been something related to your credit card or something!

    i have been told this before but a slight variation of the message for an account which was completely unrelated to me, And it wasn't billing issue,

    what is google like with addresses on the billing info? I have been told i can use a completely different address to the one on the card, BUT i used the card holder address for this account,

    is there any method at the minute where people are able to get around having a new accounts after suspension? Have searched high and low on this forum and other sites. but no solution yet.

    I'm in a similar position, had 10 accounts banned in the past fortnight.

    There's a lot of posts on a lot of forums going back several years on this topic with a lot of contradictions. There's issues like IP addresses & using virtual machines which are all doable, but I think the credit card is the trickiest part.

    From my testing, I believe (but have yet to prove) that you need a credit card with -
    1. An unbanned CC number
    2. An unbanned billing address
    3. A legit name & billing address i.e. matches up with the electoral roll
    4. The name & billing address on the card match up with the name & billing address you enter when you create the adwords account.

    Of course it's perfectly possible to do all this, but takes some effort especially if you want to create several accounts quickly. Also the process is probably different in the UK where I live compared to the US.

    Yep, they have been reviewing accounts very diligently now. We are also facing similar issues but guess you gotta keep getting the replacement accounts up.

    Did you try contacting them? What keywords are you using? Most reviews are triggered at a keyword level, itself!

    After spending such amount, and you said card used only for adwords, I'm shocked why they have suspended a good client like you! Is there any way to find-out exact reason of the suspension by calling them ?

    I would suggest you to directly speak to their customer support and explain your situation, creating multiple accounts every time will lead no results except ban, also adwords support is not that bad as bing becuase they do reinstate accounts.

    read on the forum

    you can buy accounts with promotion money already added .

    the account connected to a vps and if you want to refill they do it for safe reasons .

    there many providers on the misc of this forum

    bing and adwords there both on offer see the misc of forum dont pm me ... not my business just advise.

    (( maybe service like this are dead know!))

    You need just follow simple steps, and you don't get banned on adwords. My working method :

    1. Find some friend's, visit him at home, and made adwords account on his pc and his ip.

    2. Put his valid adress name etc.

    3. In my country, there is payment method by wire transfer, so when some of your friends are scared put his credit card somewhere, you can easily deposit money on adwords by your bank transfer

    4. IMPORTANT - add less than 10 ads, and made daily spend less than 10€. I'm doing this at 5€, because i'm carefuly.
    - if you add too much ads, or set daily spend around 15 € +, your account get automaticaly 2-3 billing review, and there is big chance so you get banned. If you following step 4, you never get early bililing check, and you will be all right.

    5. After 24h, you can add another ads - i'm doing just around 10 everyday, and set higher daily spend ( + 2-3€ / day ). Chceck algorithm can't detect you, when you will doing it slowly.


    You just need to find good friends, wich can be helpful to invite you every few days to add and chceck campaigns.


    Never doing :
    - use the same domain from previously banned acc
    - never login to friends acc on your pc, ip

    Can doing :
    - affiliate link's on landingpage isn't problem in this case
    - automatic payments and 1 legit coupon isn't problem as well

    Just do it slowly, find a lot of friends, and you will be back. After 15 - 30 day's, you can rise budget faster.

    Suspicious Payment UPDATE: Guys this has usually almost nothing to do with your payment method. This is what they are saying because it's an easy thing to defend for customer service. In reality almost everyone who gets banned for ANY reason sees this message. After years of dealing with this Ill list a bunch of prevention measures. Once an account is banned its almost never possible to get it back UNLESS, you call and call every single day and get level 10 with them. I've had this work, I've also had it not work. I've run over 3 million through adwords in the last 2 years in over 30 accounts.


    Prevention Measures: If you spend a little time on your next adwords account, I promise you will almost NEVER have issues.

    1. IP address - obviously if you were just banned then login and make a new account from the same ip is not good.
    2. Domain age - I still maintain its best to buy an expiring/aged domain, I've personally still had less issues when I do this.
    3. Billing Address - make sure this is good otherwise you will have def have issues. Try not to use a prepaid card.
    4. Gsuite - Sign up with gsuite, create emails, validate email for your aged domain that you just bought. Google loves google.
    5. Google Maps - Get a virtual address in any city and verify it as your biz address on google local - takes 5 days and is free. Use this to submit it to directory sites.
    6. Try to have google consultants reach out to you first as a local business. Get a g-rep BEFORE you setup adwords and spend money. Let them "convince you". There's a way to force this if you setup in spanish (just the language setting). Have them 'hold your hand' on the initial consultation and setup. I've done this before with new accounts and never had an issue after.
    7. Make sure you have a website with a privacy policy - It just helps. All sites should if you collect info. The website should be something if manually reviewed will look somewhat quality.

    The more you do of the above, the better your chances of never having an issue. More importantly if you KEEP getting banned this should stop that.

    If you ever have any specific questions, PM me anytime.
