Has anyone else been hit with a ban spree on adwords? I signed up with adwords a few weeks ago, using my real info. I forgot about it for a while due to other PPC networks I use, and they sent me an Email with a voucher. That got me motivated to jump on adwords. I signed up using my adsense account email, and all of my information. When it asked for payment I put in the voucher like it said. A few days later I was perm banned because they "could not verify my billing information". After Emailing them and deal with total idiots, I called them. They said it was just a temporary review, etc. I get an Email the next day and they tell me that it is in fact permanently banned. When I log into adwords all I see is that it was banned for billing information. I told them "Well how are you sending me checks for adsense if the billing address is wrong? You don't have a cc on file from me because I was on the trial credit." and they never replied to me. So I had a my neighbor try to sign up to see what happened (different IP of course), they submitted all their info and didn't start any campaigns yet. A few hours later their account was under review. However they added their CC to their account. Four days later their account is permanently banned from adwords. Same reason, unable to verify it. They didn't add a voucher, they didn't do anything to their account except set up the billing. WTF is going on with adwords? I've since decided to make fake accounts, 9/10 of them died almost instantly. Obviously I know how to hide myself via proxies, vpn's and various other methods including using VPS, dedicated servers, rooted windows boxes, etc. I don't understand what is going on with google. I tried to run a legitimate campaign and got banned for no real reason, so now I have blackhat methods to deal with adwords campaigns without going into details. To be honest I'd rather just pay the bills and do it legitimately but with my account being banned I have no idea what to do. Has anyone had any success getting their account unbanned?
