    Hello, for 10 months I've been running whitehat ads for the same service with the same ad copy. The ad peaks, drops, then I rebuild the audience and recreate the ad starting over.

    It's a biz account. I pay via bank transfer daily. No balance.

    All is nice with the world.

    Last night an ad that was peaking got banned for policy violations. I recreated the ad with a rebuilt audience and it was approved. Then two hours later the whole account was banned.

    I just appealed by asking why I was banned.

    Questions:
    If an ad is flagged too much, then can this result in an ad ban? If so, what is "too much"? I suspect the ad was flagged a lot. It's a bit sensational. But for 10 months It's been cool.
    Has there been a lot of banning lately?
    If an ad is banned, is the ad copy saved by FB so as to auto ban new identical ads?
    Do I buy a new advert account? If so, do I need a new bank account, too?

    Yes if an ad gets too much negative reviews from facebook users , facebook bans the ad account and only facebook knows that "too much"
    Yes , Facebook has gone crazy
    Yes , Facebook saved the ad so you have to make few changes in the new ad
    Yes , You should buy a new fb ad account and yes you need a new card for it as you cannot use the previous one as it has been flagged.
    Hope this helped :)

    Three hours after I wrote an appeal, my account was reactivated. No explanation was provided for the ban or reinstatement. Only an apology was provided.

    The disabled ad is still disabled. I *could* reactive it but I'm scared lol

    *Edit*

    I feel blessed/lucky.

    Congrats on retrieving your FB Ad account. Very luck indeed. Avoid posting the same ad. Maybe you have a competitor who has been reporting your ad to put you down.
