Hello BHW- My advertising capabilities on FB were banned the other night. I had recently begun advertising on FB through my personal account that I have had for years. I'm obviously disappointed, but extremely driven to get back up and running again! Its insane to me how FB can take-in such vast sums of money, literally one of the richest companies out there, but provides absolutely terrible customer service, and zero phone help. Also wild how they just ban people like crazy with zero regard for the fact that they could be making mistakes. I really had the best intentions with what I was doing. I was working the teespring angle. Is FB cracking down on the influx of direct targeted tee campaigns? Here is the automated email I got- Your Facebook Ads account has been disabled. All of your ads have been suspended and should not be run again on Facebook under any circumstances. We typically disable an account if too many of its ads violate our TOS or Advertising Guidelines. Unfortunately, your Facebook Ads account will not be reactivated and you will be unable to continue advertising on Facebook. We appreciate your understanding. To which I of course replied and laid out my case neatly and concise, and they responded with this lovely gem: Facebook is committed to presenting ads to our users that are useful and non-intrusive, and we are continually working to increase the relevance of ads. Our goal is to provide the highest quality user experience. We reserve the right to reject any advertising that we deem contrary to these objectives. Similarly, we reserve the right to close an account creating ads contrary to these objectives. For this reason, if any of your ads have been removed or your ad account has been disabled, we will be unable to reactivate either. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please consider this decision final. Thanks for your understanding, I am not sure exactly why I was banned. I was however using a scraper (FBGraph Scraper, and SLF), and I had made several custom audiences that were revoked as they targeted names. Ultimately I am confused, because there are people killing it right now targeting names, and they have been operating consistently for a long time. How are they doing it? Also, they must be aware that ALL serious advertisers within their network are using scrapers. My main question is this - What do I need to do exactly to get back up and rolling with Facebook ads ASAP? I have several questions. I have found that there are people on this forum selling aged FB Ad Accounts. Is this the best option for me? Would I still need to go through a Socks5 Proxy to change my IP? I am not well versed in the proxy realm, this is something that I need to research, but I read a Socks5 is much better than a VPN.. I additionally read that the proxy must be in my city. Where is the best place to buy a proxy, and is there anyone or business that provides guidance in getting this all set up correctly? Is the proxy/IP change necessary? Also, believe I need to change my payment options. I feel like I have read that Facebook will accept ad payments via the prepaid cc's? Or whatever those are, not 100% familiar, another realm I must look into more in-depth. That would be easier than changing bank account/PayPal of course. But if that's what I need to do, that's what I will have to do. If someone would simply lay out exactly the steps I need to take, I would really appreciate it. I am simply unclear if I bought an existing ad account from someone on here, would I have to still change my IP? I would believe I would. Where that angle gets difficult for me is considering that people get banned while on Starbucks wifi, obviously FB cannot ban the Starbucks IP.. But perhaps they ban my mac address? Does anyone know the protocol happening over at FB-HQ, or have a loose idea? Would Tor for Facebook ads work? I cannot imagine so.. but just a question.. Or what about hidemyass.. Another option I dont believe would work. Do advise. I am open to all ideas. You guys are awesome.
