I have the account under a nickname of mine and not my legal name, but it's been like that for a few years or so. Started advertising with Facebook in mid-October and the credit card on file belongs to me(although it doesn't seem to be on file anymore). No other info in the account though, so not sure if that's what set things off. On the "contact Facebook" link, here's a link to screenshot of the questions that I see:

I did also notice this message on the billing page:
and received an email with this message at the same time:
"It looks like your ad account was used to create ads that violate Facebook's Advertising Guidelines. Facebook's policies protect everyone on Facebook and help make it a good experience. As a result, your ad account has been permanently disabled.
Here's why your account was disabled:

All that I'm doing with the account is using it to drive traffic to an automotive related site with picture and content galleries listing things like, "The most expensive cars in the world", or "The Fastest Porsches of all time". The galleries are a mix of pictures and content with anywhere from 1000-2000 words and monetized with links to display ads. I bid on website on clicks to website.
I've have about 6 or so campaigns running out of about 20 or so that I've tested, with a few different ad sets within each. the ads will say something like, "Check out 20 of the quickest cars" or "19 of the most ridiculously expensive cars for true ballers", etc.
I've had maybe 2 ads disapproved about a month or so ago, but that's it. I do log in from a few different locations, since I also log in at work and go to my gf's place every other weekend in a town a few hours from mine. Anything I can do to get things going again? Thanks.
