Hello everyone,

I opened a new AdWords account, I did not set up a campaign, and I did not start advertising. I just entered the credit card details of the business.

I received this email.


I was told to fill out this form - what should I do?


Thank You!

Yes you will have to fill out that form and verify that you are authorized to use the credit card on file......if that is the issue.


I say "if" because that message is an all encompassing message for fraudulent activity on down to google thinking you were a previously suspended person trying to get back on.  So depending on your scenario, that will affect the outcome of the form submission.


If you are brand new and NEVER had ANY association with AdWords in any way, shape, form, through another company, another person, etc. before then showing you are authorized  to use the card and the card information is accurate, also that your card isn't declining the charges or test charge by google, then the form submission should get it done most of the time
