    BANNED after paying them after giving them over $35,000 in the past 7 months. No help at all when trying to get unbanned.

    How do I get back on? Bing/Yahoo/AOL barely brings in anything! Even worse, I signed an 18 month 2.2k apartment lease plus bought a new car with $650 a month payments. If I don't get a new adwords account up soon, I'm literally going to be on the street.

    Now I need to get back on adwords. I already bought a new computer and ordered another separate internet connection, the only obstacles left would be the billing info, address verification, and phone verification.

    If I put in the credit card, they require a cardholder name which must match what it says on the credit card. The problem is that banks won't let you put a different name unless you have gov. documents and if you lie to the bank with false documents you'll most likely go on chexsystems which is worse than adwords ban.

    For the EFT, they also require a account holder name and they apparently won't let you edit the name that you put in, probably to stop people from selling accounts.

    If I get a DBA they can search online for most counties and bring up my name that registered the DBA. They can also order the statement of information for corporations registered with the state which show much more info than DBA.

    The only way to open an adwords account and not be detected would be to have a VCC where the first 6 digits of the CC are mixed in with normal CC (maybe shopsafe from BOFA? I don't know), or a bank that accepts EFT withdrawals even when bank account holder name doesn't match, or I could just add someone to my business bank account so they get CC in their name, of course they need valid SS and other documents.

    for phone verification, you can setup a google voice account. If that doesn't work get a cheap prepaid phone from walmart and load up 10 dollars and use that. I don't much more than that. sorry!

    There is a big PDF kicking around called "how to get adwords unbanned" or something like that. Lots a literature on it. Keeping looking around the site and good luck. Ditch the condo and sleep in your car.

    Made a new account, got approved, had impressions for about 4 hours, stopped showing ads at about 6am Eastern time a few days ago, then I got suspended with red message unable to verify billing information. Tried to call support and they just play the same recording again and again that I've been suspended.

    Filed out the form to appeal decision and just now I got an email that it's been reviewed again and that the decision is final. WTF is going on. I'm going apeshit now.

    Still don't know why I was banned this is BS! I lost thousands already because of this.

    Why don't you use verifiable billing info?

    You don't need an entire new internet connection and computer, you just have to delete your trail.

    new ip
    delete cookies
    delete LSO files
    new name
    new credit card
    new address
    new bank account
    new email address
    new phone number
    change MAC address (may not HAVE to, but a good idea)

    All of that can be done legally, and with little cost.

    Of course, the ads you run will most likely have to be different as well.

    You have more obstacles that that; how are you going to enter an SSN number for tax purposes? With that kind of revenue Google will need to file 1099 on a real person.

    Sounds like they're using a 3rd party verification system that does credit report checking. Even UPS uses this these days. They do address verification on the identity you gave them (through DOB and SSN) and if that address isn't on the credit report for that person then unable to verify address.

    For a new name you can register a business and open a business bank account and apply for a credit card under that name.

    Start an LLC and open a bank account under the LLC and use the debit card to fund the account. Get a PO Box for business and for phone use vonage or ring central or get a prepaid phone for this use only. For internet connection, you could manage your account at friends, local barnes and noble etc. Would suck I know, but could be done.

    I think it depends how they banned you. They banned my account because it was against their rules and regulations (it has something to do with the website im promoting). Last year alone I spend more than 25.000 euro on that account so I was quite pissed off and surprised. What I did was I opened a new account on the same computer, same ip, same browser, same billing info and it works perfectly. The only thing I couldn't do (obviously) was use the same url, so I just got a new domain, copied my entire website to the new domain and it has been up for 3 weeks. Actually this time I took precaution and split my campaigns over 3 different accounts (all with same billing info, just other urls) so that if 1 domain gets banned they don't all get banned.

    To make a long story short, if they banned you because of regulations on your website (so if they banned your website), your account will always get under review and banned as soon as you use it in a new account. However if you use another url it might just be fixed (at least for a while).

    Would you have a family member that would let you use their info, such as a mom, dad or something?

    8X8 has the best phone system -
    UPS store with a spoof on the address is the best address solution. IE - stores addresses is 123 North Maple Street - you use 123 South Maple street and the mail man will deliver to the right addresses.
    Quickie LLC and a new bank account is pretty easy. You don't even need to keep the LLC active with the state after everything is set up.
    When working borderline angles break things up and always have a back up name, number, account to get back up and running fast.

    Google and partners have come to stay with stringent rules.

    People who suffer more are users from U.S, people in other/third world country can work around
    this sh** with no much hassle.

    But luckily enough, we also handle PPC campaign.

    Talk to me, let's see what can be done.

    Send me a PM thou i will be on a short 3 days vacation
    to commence work on Monday.
