    DAYUUM FB laid the smack down on me 2 nights ago. Bent me over its knee and gave me spanking like a screaming child in a restaurant.

    30 agency accounts banned. :(

    Just keep rolling with the punches right? Never a guarantee in this industry.

    Sure :) Basically the same thing everyone else is doing. Aged the accounts running clean ads for a few days. Got to higher spends and then cloaked for my diet and muscle offers lol then received this mesage:

    Hi Facebook Advertiser,
    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 Terms of Use 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.
    Thanks,

    Good to know they appreciate my understanding lol.

    Yeah it wasn't kosher. After looking at your icon, I had to watch "The best of Pennywise" on Youtube. So epic.

    This can be coincidental but the past few weeks the trendmicro scan traffic from FB increased. My guess is that they are doing better correlation with the TM data. Bing went through this last year as well when they did a sweep through accounts that were suspicious.

    Facebook signed a partnership with TrendMicro two years ago focused on using SPN to find malware, etc. Bing Ads have a similar relationship. The amount of traffic from SPN has been increasing of late. This could be coincidental or an n=1 like case. It is possible for FB to use the data that TM warehouses to determine potential advertisers that are cloaking. Again - I don't know this is the case.

    What's the purpose of a cloaker if FB can still detect that your ads are violating their TOS. Consider investing in a better cloaker.
