Google is unresponsive

I tried to set up an Ad Word campaign ten days ago.  The first Google rep stopped returning my calls.  The second Google rep signed me up but then said Google Ad Words has a "glitch" and my campaign can't be started.  Does anyone know what is going on?

Hi Don,

 

You don't need a Google rep or call AdWords if you want to create an AdWords campaign. What you will need for signing up is an email address and a valid Credit Card. Once you have created the account you can set up and launch a campaign on your own whenever you wish to do so. Self service..Robot LOL

 

I have not heard of any glitches, hiccups, or sytem bugs in recent days.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Thanks for the tip on self service.  I wasn't informed of that when I called Google to create and account and give them ad words and phrases.  The rep just wrote me an email saying I had to wait while Google fixed their "glitch".  I'll start searching for self service.
