So does anybody know how to get unbanned from Facebook in this situation?
So far I replaced the offending site with one selling yoga products and sent in an appeal using Facebook's form. I haven't heard back yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I'd like to try getting me account back legitimately before resorting to creating a fake identity, vpn, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
The full email I got from Facebook is below. Notice they cite "user trust" as the reason.
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:
Ads may not promote a business model or practice that is deemed by Facebook in its sole discretion to be unacceptable or contrary to Facebook's overall advertising philosophy or to any applicable law, including but not limited to ad content that creates distrust with users.
All claims in ads must be adequately substantiated. Any offers promoted within an ad must not be false, deceptive or misleading or contain spam. Ads must not contain or promote illegal products or services. Ads must not offend or violate the rights of any third parties.
Ads must clearly represent the company, product, service or brand that is being advertised. Products and services promoted in the ad copy must be clearly represented on the landing page, and the destination site may not offer or link to any prohibited product or service. Additionally, ads can't suggest false relevancy to generic offers.
