I thought that I was going to be spending less than what Google took from me.  So since I don't want to lose anymore money how do I delete my account?  I haven't seen any where that says how to and the help support doesn't do anything other than telling me that I can delete my account...

Hi Teamwfc,

 

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with Adwords.  Do you have any questions about your campaigns or results?  There are lots of folks here who can offer some great advise from setup and structure of your account to analyzing your reports to maximize your ROI.  You could put your account on hold, get a little help here and relaunch a fresh refined campaign that runs within your budget constraints...Just an option.

 

To answer your question about canceling:

 

First, to immediately stop spending, if you haven't already, you should pause your campaigns.

 

Try this:

 

My Account > Preferences - Bottom of page " Want to stop running your AdWords ads?"

Hi Abr,

 

Deleting your account will not help, the email will still be associated with that account.  Try the details outlined here:

I had an account running in 2004, I have not used it at all for 9 years... then google prompted me to update my CC for another service I use and the 2004 campaign restarted... I contacted someone from google that told me tough luck, you have to pay the $148... So I ended up here to delete my adwords account!

Oh... Bing has given me a credit of $150 after I told them about what the google agent said!... I will use that for my new campaign for a website I actually want to advertise!

Basically they dont allow you to delete your account so they can keep their numbers up making it look like a lot more people are using it than actually are. Any other program would allow you to delete an account but they have begun painting a clear picture that they want to be like apple and hijack your life while over charging for service that provide little to no ROI even if you make it through the antiquated Terms of use.
