How do I remove myself from an old non-Admin AdWords account?

How do you remove yourself from an old AdWords account you don't have Admin access to?

 

My Google (gmail) account is linked to an AdWords that is no longer in use by a former Media agency. At the time they granted me 'Standard Access.' I am therefore unable to change or delete myself from the account as I do not have 'Admin Access'.   

 

How can I unlink my email address from an AdWords account that I don't have the authority to change it, while the Admins of the account no longer work for the particular Media agency that use to manage the account.

Who owns the Adwords account?
Why your account was granted access (initially)?

As MosheTLV suggests, the simplest way by far is to contact the account owner (even dormant accounts have owners) and ask them to log in and unlink your email address.

Has this problem yet been solved? I have adwords read only access to a friends account and now can't seem to remove myself. Any updates?
