Yes, this came in as surprise and shocking! I got a post mail (not email) from Google adwords to reactivate my old banned account. They also included coupon worth about $40 bucks. When they banned my Adwords account they said I'm permanently banned & threatened to sue me if I opened new ac. I recovered from Adwords slap within a month and begin making more money than ever purely on SEO and investing on quality content. I did not logon to my adwords ac although same ac is linked to my Gmail and Adsense ac. I opened Adwords a/c way back in 2004. And my ac mainly got banned because I had lots of inactive campaigns which violated their current policy. I really don't need adwords anymore. But will use their coupon anyway Anyone got similar second chance mail?
