    Hi!

    I run a small newspaper that hinges on Facebook ads to get the stories out. It worked fine for months up until a few weeks ago when my Fb ad account was flagged for "unusual" activity. I filled in all the forms only to get a message a few days later that my account was to be permanently disabled.

    I tried making new Facebook account and making it admin of the facebook page, but as soon as I tried making an ad I got a notice saying "someone may has logged in to your account" and asking for a government issued ID.

    How do I get around this? This is harrowing to my business and seeing as I don't believe I've done anything wrong, it's terribly unfair.

    Can I buy someone's account, or will it close it be flagged too? :(

    If you want that account you need to provide Gov id, you can fake it, But high chances you will get ban again. Better Go with new account and let that account live for few days and then shift your page on that account and start running ads again. Dont use VCC, Most of the account get flag because of VCC. or use other laptop if you have. :)

    I submitted the gov ID with the first account but that didn't work. With this second account I used a VCC and tried creating ads straightaway but got the error "someone may have logged into your account". I guess my mistake was not waiting for the account to appear like a normal account. Also, could trying to boost the same post with the new account have caused on the account being locked?

    Atleast wait 2 or 3 days before creating ads on new account :) Most of the VCC is geting flagged May be that also a reason.
