    Hi,

    I've been running ads on facebook for over a year, with the odd hiccup here and there but have always been able to get ads running on fake accounts, until recently its been really rough.
    I'm wondering if anyone is experiencing the same thing and overcame it, or have any information.

    I use multi year old accts, phone verified, real CC, CC matches billing address + name, 6 weeks of activity before adding CC and attempting ads. First ad is an internal facebook ad, no URL outside of facebook.
    All accounts are on unique IPs.

    The same thing happens everytime, ad is approved, ad spends for <1hr, gets "stuck", and then stops spending. Account flags 12-24hrs later with "Unusual activity".
    Does anyone know what that specific series of events + flag means? is it just a security check that I am failing that runs after the account starts to spend?

    I recall something similar happening in Dec, and I thought I solved it, but now I believe it might have just went away on its own... maybe facebook enables/disables certain requirements to weed out some people.

    Any help / advice is greatly appreciated. If anyone else is having similar issues, feel free to ask me :)

    Quite a few people have that same problem. I cater specifically to facebook ad farmers and to further reduce farming risks supply my clients with residential ip addresses. This seems to work a majority of the time. But its just like playing the adsense farming game. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

    No I havent yet, I am going to try Debian's residential IPs today, but will have to redo activity for a bit on new IP before I can test if it works.

    I'lll keep you posted. Let me know if you find anything too!

    Any my accounts works on a virtual machine. For each account I had a separate 3G modem with a prepaid sim card. This means that each IP was unique.
    Accounts had no friends, but every day was building activity - like and sharing content from big FanPages.
    Previously, everything worked well.

    Yea, sounds the same as me. I think FB might just be temporarily cranking security to thin the herd a bit. I doubt they want to stop everyone forever. They like our money. They just don't want too many people doing it.

    Pawel, did you do the same thing in Dec? Do you remember if you had a similar problem at the start of Dec and it went away?

    In December all my accounts which I created in September/October works well. So, At that time I did not start any new ad account.
    I can not confirm your theory, but it is probable.

    Pawel7, I'd like to exchange skype info with you too.. we have very similar setups and can probably help each other in the future if either of us ever get stuck again. I can't PM yet (either can you lol) and not allowed to post info publicly. Tomorrow I will donate so I can get access to PM and PM you if you are interested.
