    i will tell you what's happened.
    get your own conclusions.

    some months ago i used facebook advertising.no problems.
    then i decided to buy a coupon and use it on facebook.
    from that day all my ads were disapproved.when i asked the reasons they replied with automated messages.for many of them there was no reason at all!

    and this is what happened the last time(few days ago):
    i opened a fan page. it was a simple riddle fan page. no cpa involved or anything.
    i wanted to promote that page on facebook and they disapproved it.
    i checked my advertising panel and an old disapproved ads was ACTIVATED AND RUNNING!!!!! I NEVER ACTIVATED IT AND IT WAS DISAPPROVED BUT SOMEONE DISAPPROVED MY NEW AD AND ACTIVATED THE VERY OLD ONE!

    i sent them to the hell telling that there was no reason for that and they had neither watched the page before to disapprove it.
    i resubmitted.
    they approved it this time!

    my campaign was running...but...the next day: fan page disappeared and campaign was still running for a non existent page!
    i still do not know what happened.
    i try to reach my fan page and i am redirected to my facebook main panel.

    i have sent them 2 emails yesterday but this time i did not received the automated reply message that confirms to me they will reply soon.
    and...of course i have not received any reply yet(maybe they have blocked my email address?!).

    well you can get your own opinion anyway mine is that they are waiting for my coupon to expire since it will expire very soon.

    they are fucked bastards and i really hate those people.
    i am very angry!

    so when you work on facebook keep in mind this: THEY CAN WASTE YOUR HARD WORK EVERYTIME AND WITH NO REASON AT ALL. YOU CANNOT TO DO ANYTHING EXCEPT TO PROSECUTE THEM.
    I AN THINKING TO DO THIS.

    THAT'S ALL.

    Your page might not have been disabled. This has happened to me, too, but with facebook groups. I thought they were deleted but they weren't because they were showing half of the time and the other half they were gone. I'm not sure what causes this, but I think it's some kind of glitch!

    I dealt with face book advertisers, they suck sweaty balls, their whole system is f**ked. I finally did get to talk to a real person through email and they sucked shit too, finally got mad and told them they sucked shit too.

    Any system that causes you that amount of grief is not worth the time or money. Go check out stumble ad's instead. It's a lot easier to use, and easier to get approved. Read the guidelines and stay within them and you'll get approved. Ditch facebook advertising. They blow.

    I had a similar problem a few months back. It was a trivial amount of money for me but if it's worth the time, consider small claims court. You don't need a lawyer and the 'trial' takes place in your State. The expense to them of sending a lawyer is so high that they just give you your money back, and you don't have to worry about shitty automated replies.
