    Hey, if you're currently doing Facebook ads or have any experience with Facebook ads, I'd appreciate it if you could explain why I keep getting this error.

    Long story short, I buy an aged Facebook account resided in the country/city of a dedicated proxy that I also purchased, afterwards I warm the account up for less than a week and I add a payment method in my ad manager. I add a MasterCard and it was accepted.

    I try to create an ad for page likes in ad manager then my ad gets approved then an hour or two later, my ads get paused and I get an unusual activity notification and I need to upload a photo ID. After I upload a photo ID , they deny it a few times but I keep messaging back saying it doesn't make sense because they keep saying they cannot confidently enable my ads account (or payments account) due to suspected fraudulent activity.

    The last message I got in the support case was a different message and it said that they reviewed the case carefully or whatever but they still decided not to do anything. Now I cannot respond to the case so I have to start over with a new account.

    Not to mention, the account DOB was 2001 and I made up a story like my dad was helping me with my account and I uploaded the photo ID of the dad (same last name of account and same residential/billing address)

    I really want to create ads on Facebook for my YouTube channel and other projects but I can't, it's really frustrating when I keep getting blocked. I'd appreciate it if anybody could give me any advice regarding how to prevent your Facebook ads or payments account from getting blocked or disabled.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I dont fully understand what you did, did you say the account was made in 2001? thats not possible since Facebook was created after that.

    I think the biggest problem is you don't know the history of the account when you're buying it. Even the fact that you're changing the location later with the dedicated proxy could be suspicious..

    Try to build it from scratch and give it a few weeks of activity on both the account and the fan page.... You werent instantly locked after adding the credit card so my guess is that its probably an issue with the farming
