It turns out that there actually was a problem with our billing because of Amex. Actually there we two problems:


1) Initially Amex had our mailing and billing mixed up -  they fixed it!  I resubmitted

2) They made a typo on the street number -  which we also found now and have corrected


Problem is -  Google will not even review it again - seems like they have suspended forever - Ive tried to call but when I put in the customer number it just gives me a recording and says you're suspended yada yada and gives me no option to speak to anyone


Here is the message at the top of the adwords page when I login:


Your Google AdWords account has been suspended because your billing information in this or a related account could not be verified



This is the automated message that they send (multiple times after I keep trying to appeal to them)

Its very frustrating to think that Google cares so little to even pick up the phone to speak to a potential advertiser. 

Whats wierd is that the campaign was approved for a day and did make the initial p[ayment - then was suspended with the billing reason. In hindsight I know there were mistakes in the billing (Thanks to Amex Smiley Wink but the card is valid I have had Amex correct the issues stated above and I have resubmitted the billing.


Yesterday I added my personal visa card as a new billing option and made it the primary - then adwords wont even attempt to charge that claiming there is an internal error.



Please Google and Google community - please help.

an another automated response...


Dear Advertiser, Thank you for your email.

Thank you for your continued patience during this process. Our specialists have re-reviewed your accounts and have determined that our decision is correct and final. As a result, your account, and any related accounts you may have created, have been suspended.


- Our support team is unable to provide any further information on this matter.

- Please refrain from creating additional AdWords accounts, as they will be subject to the same suspension.

The AdWords Terms and Conditions state that Google reserves the right to stop running any ads when deemed necessary. You can review these Terms and Conditions here: 

We appreciate your cooperation and thank you for your understanding.

So is that it? Does this mean that everyone else except for me is allowed to advertise? Why?
