I called Google Adwords a few hours ago, I asked if I could run ads in India in the Hindi language, The Google Adwords rep said yes. So I submit an ad and a few hours later I notice my account is suspended. What gives??? I was told by Google this was fine now I'm suspended.  This is ridiculous

It means exactly what it says, suspicious behaviour. Google won't give any clearer explanation because they don't want to help people get around their security checks.

 

One possible reason is if you have had another AdWords account previously. Google typically finds opening more than one account to be suspicious.

" We've identified suspicious behavior in the payment activity of this or your other AdWords accounts"  What does this even mean?

So they totally at random suspend people's accounts?

Of course not - AdWords is a business and they obviously want customers. However they do have security procedures. 

 

A lot of people from India come here to ask the same question as you.
