FB Ad Paused, Adwords Lesson Resumed
Today, I got something to share with you guys, and it's not quite inspiring but rather, annoying. But you guys need to hear something like this in order for you to be aware this is happening.
Just this morning, right after my login at Facebook, I was greeted by an annoying message that goes like this...
What is annoying with this message from Facebook is, they told me they're trying to access funds in my fan page account and were not able to do so because the card that's associated with the account is either expired or not valid.
Truth is, I intentionally put there an expired credit card.
It is fortunate of me that I put an expired card there or else, I've been charged without my consent. Maybe, I have figured out early on that this gonna happen.
I used to spend money in Facebook ads. When I disassociated myself with the online marketing company that's selling herbal coffee on the Internet, I paused my ad and decided to just do blogging promoting WA affiliate marketing.
Facebook Tricking Its Customers
Just recently, I received a message from Facebook notifying me that they now have a new policy on anti-discrimination and that as a fan page owner I have to agree with the new policy.
Obeying, I ticked the check box and agreed to the policy.
To my shock, there was a message from Facebook telling me they were not able to bill my account because my card is expired.
"A charge for just ticking the check box?"
That puzzled me. I didn't know someone could be charged $30 for just agreeing with the new anti-discrimination policy.
What I suspect to have happened there is, upon agreeing to the new policy, my inactive ad got activated automatically without my knowledge.
And that's outrageous!
Then, it got repeated again and again, including this morning, and I guess, it won't stop. I am just ignoring the message.
There was even a time the fan page that's associated with the ad got unpublished by me, and still the attempt continued. Imagine, being charged for an ad in a page that's unpublished?
Has this Facebook lost his mind?
It's so disgusting, so disgusting that the event triggered me to resume my lessons in Google Adwords via our WA Affiliate Bootcamp here.
We're fortunate we have alternatives. Let's see if this one is better than the other.
Yours in progress,
