    So I created a new account, used a legit USA debit card and alla sudden I get this message:

    We periodically review accounts for security purposes and to verify billing information. As a result of this review, your account and any related accounts have been suspended, and your ads are no longer running on Google.

    This being said, the account is suspended. I was reading a bit prior to posting and see that people using vouchers were having this problem. I did not use any promo-code. I did have a previous account which got suspended, but I'm on a new ip, cookies/etc.

    Any idea on why this may have been caused?

    Whoa, this is a bit strange... I just got suspended too with the same freakin message. I Checked my billing information over and over again but I couldn't find the issue. The reason for suspension was that Google couldn't verify my billing information.

    I do have another account but its not suspended and I wanted a new account for the organizational aspect of it.

    I was a bit impatient so I tried creating a new account after the fact and still got suspended. * I did read later on that if one account got suspended then all other related accounts will be too including all new accounts. I've tried contacting Google and they just keep things short and automated, which is straight BS cause I can't even appeal it. I just simply get the same freakin email about I violated the terms and conditions. It does not state on the terms and conditions only allowing one account per person/address. I don't know what happened...

    I would love to have more than one account, each its own entity. Oh Help BlackHat Gurus!

    Ok, I tried to contact the big G by phone but the only way to get through to them is by either giving my number or customer ID. Well, I get an automated message of the email sent to me. Keep in mind that I'm giving the customer ID that has been suspended.

    I do have an account and I currently use it. It's not suspended and it's my first account. All other accounts after got suspended.

    I've heard of a BH way of getting new adwords accounts. How can I achieve it. I'm not interested in vouchers. I just want separate accounts for each website I advertise without linking accounts.

    The only assumption I can come up with here is that I have a gmail account I call my own.. I've had previous accounts (say account A banned); I would then create account (B) which got banned yesterday. But if I logged into the same gmail account while having accounts both A and B; would this tie everything together you think? Obviously, I had a new IP, cookies/credit card, address, name, even domain, etc when creating a new account. The only thing I did do was keep a personal gmail account which I logged into when having both accounts.

    The responses I received were automated. But I'm in the US, not a VCC, everything was legit and new. Confusing really. I'll post back, but if anyone has insight it would be much appreciated.

    It's likely your gmail account caused them to notice you had multiple adwords accounts which is a violation of their adwords account policy. It should be no surprise that you got ban.

    Yeah, I mean that would be the only assumption... I'll create a new one (and gmail) and see if that rectifies the problem.

    I've tried that and it doesn't work. I even tried a new gmail and different name with the same results. I guess the only way to get another account is to have a new address, name, gmail and maybe even a new payment method. Essentially, a new person signing up.

    Are there any BH methods to this madness?

    I have tried over 100 times to make a new account for months now. I put in new CC,billing,email,IP,ccleaner,legit forwarded phone # and nothing works. All I do is add the billing info with out any Campaign or Ad's and after 1 day they suspend the account for being unable to verify billing. It seems like no legitimate person can even open an account. I have had other real people try to open a new account and nobody has been successful.
    I will pay top dollar for anyone selling a verified billing Adword account. PM me if interested.

    No wonder GOOGLE stock took a dive when they reported poor earnings last week for the quarter.

    Wow, no kidding... There must be a way because let just say you have more than one Adwords account that are linked(Which seems to be the only way at this point), if one gets suspended due to whatever reason, all the other related account would get suspended too. .....or not?

    Personally, I know of several legit companies that use methods of advertising that are considered to be a direct violation of googles policies. If they were to get caught their account would get suspended. However, they have several accounts for this exact reason.... So, how do they do it...?

    :::Bump:::

    I bought a new router (mac), deleted my old gmail (prior to converting to the new mac). Naturally, I got a new IP address. I'm on another computer in my office, I downloaded opera as a browser as opposed to firefox. Everything is 100% new. I will be using the same first/last name, a new credit card (and) new domain name. I just registered. all is well.

    .....I am contemplating getting a $100 promo off fiver or somewhere, would this be advised or possibly cause a suspension by doing so?

    Regardless, I'll post back for those of you having these problems...

    I have same problem last year ago. When start in IM i download some course about PPC and create Google Adwords account for tests. Create but never used.

    When start with PPC again i create new account. Use domain name for log-gin, valid credit card, my real name, etc. And after 24 hours they ban my new account. i talk with person from Google team and they told to delete my inactive (old) account. Fix this issue and they recovery my new account. Hope this help.

    Adwords tracks EVERYTHING. Your OS, Resolution, IP, etc... they put super-cookies on your system.

    Basically, you need to create an entire different ID. Don't use proxies, vpn, vps... they will detect your windows version and the host and BAN.

    Firefox with better privacy will take care of the flash cookies. So do you think it may because they know I am using a VPN?
