the original suspension email from google is usually key.

if the suspension is not permanent and something can be done then,
the next-steps are typically outlined in the original suspension email.

generally, for payment-activity issues -- be certain that the card being
used is a credit-card from a bank issuer, the name/address information
for the card-holder is exactly the same within the account/billing details,
the bank/issuer properly authorizes google to transact a payment against
the credit-card -- and only, one, single, ad-account was ever opened with
google, at any time; then, fill out the following form:
https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/pf_suspended

however, if a suspension is permanent and nothing can be done
then, google may not offer any details whatsoever and the same
similar response will always be given, without any solution.

no; creating new accounts will usually make things worse

and can result in a permanent suspension of all accounts

and any future accounts -- permanent suspensions are

against the advertiser, not a specific account.

 

this a mainly a peer-to-peer forum.

posting more specific information here in the public forums --
such as the original suspension email, the exact website url,

number of ad-accounts that were ever opened with google --
may allow others to offer more specific suggestions.

[ be certain to remove any personal/private information,
such as account or credit-card numbers before posting --
this is a public-forum. ]

otherwise, such suspensions are often permanent and nothing can be done.
