Can you get suspended by Google Adwords for using Prepaid credit card?

I want to ask this before I advised my client on the situation. From what i've heard and read on the forums that you might risk getting your account suspended if you are using a prepaid credit card to sign up for Adwords. Is there any validity to this, as a friend of mine said that he used a prepaid credit card and received an email from Google Stating that


"Your Google AdWords account has been suspended because your billing information in this or a related account could not be verified"


Anyone out there have experienced this situation?

Prepaid credit card are not acceptable; but this is not  a reason for suspension; We need to look for another cause for the suspension;

Have you verified that your billing address (including street number and zip code ) match those on record with the credit card issuer?
