Hi,
I have a good offer to sell a lot of my old, currently unused google ads accounts. What if buyer will run abusive ads on them? Can Google somehow punish me for selling them? Have you seen something like that?
 
The only thing google can do to you is flag (lowering trust) or even banning the accounts in case they were well connected; for example, registered on the same IP address, advertised the same thing, had the same payment method, etc.
And only if the buyer runs abusive ads on any of the accounts. Other than that, for example, on a legal level, no, it won't do anything.
 
After buying accounts they will have to change payment method, because mine of course won't work. But I guess Google will see what the previous payment method was, and my other accounts that I run my clients campaigns on them, that still use the same payment method are at risk?
 
the account is banned and is over, they do not do any follow up or anything else.

Yes, they will send a hitman to your house and sanction your cats :D
On a serious note tho, nothing will happen. Accounts will get banned, end of story.

I'll like to buy the accounts, please drop any means of reaching out to you. Thanks
 
Don't sell your accounts unless you understand this industry and have made your accounts with that in mind.
As long as your accounts can be linked to you, you'd be better off without that money.

You are worried the buyer would run abusive ads, but you should worry about them running your account and not paying for them.
Google would come to you, and they'll have a case against you because you agreed to not sell or pass ownership of your Google Ads account.
 
Yes, if the buyer runs abusive ads on the accounts you sold, Google could potentially penalize you, especially if they trace the accounts back to your ownership. It's essential to ensure the potential buyers understand and agree to abide by Google's policies to avoid this risk.

Ok, but is Google really doing it? I've searched Internet forums and haven't came across threads like "Help! I sold my Google Ads Account and Google is now banning all my accounts!"

Same question to @roydan - is there somewhere on the internet a thread where someone seeks for help because google is trying to collect money from previous account owner?

We all know, that Google can do a lot. But the question is - are there proofs (like threads or blogposts), that it is really doing it?

Bro, stop panicking. Don't be paranoid, either do it or go find something else less BH.

This ain't panic, I wanna do it, but first I have to be sure what's at risk. I do Google Ads for living, so if they ban me I have serious problem. On the other hand I have a lots of old accounts with great spendings, that I have no reason to keep. So selling them is a good option. But as I said, I have to assess real risk first.

Well just remember if you plan to sell them here. Make sure to do it the right way through a Marketplace sales thread :D Otherwise you might get banned.
