remove policy violation ad

I made a rookie error a couple years ago following a tutorial on adwords which created an ad that pointed to a site which violates policy for redirects.  Since then I created my own site and I've been going back and forth with adwords support to get the violation removed but they keep referencing that original campaing as still being in violation.  The ad was deleted but support says:

"Sites once advertised through your AdWords account and found to be in violation with our policies will always remain in your Accounts History and deleting or pausing of those Ads will not help for the Account Unsuspension."

So at this point I'm assuming this adwords account is pretty much dead and should just stop using adwords since you can't have more than one account?

Anyone have any advice?

Hello cpedone1;

This is correct; Google is "tough" on its policy that once an account is suspended, neither the advertiser nor the account can advertise (further) with Google. There is no time limit on suspension accounts. In practice, they are suspendedforever.

 

There is neither appeal procedure nor leniency / "clemency" process in place.... All suggestions for setting a "return to advertise" process / procedure, for suspended accounts, were rejected / refused by Google.

 

Sorry that we cannot be more helpful.!
