Ads account flagged for Gambling, Malicious software and contravening policy.
1
None of these policies apply to our site, and reading Google policies, checking our LP and HP  we are compliant. Although I keep editing the ads i keep getting them disapproved. It has now been a week with me trying to edit ads and submitting at least twice a day.

All help gratefully recieved

Hi
 
Probably your site is hacked and stop editing ads and submitting new ads till your find what is the probel, as repeated policy violations can lead to a final suspension for your account (business, payment method etc.)
 
If you share your website url (as MosheTLV asked) probably we could help a bit more.
 
Regards,
István

Patrick, did you mean "contravening" or circumventing"?

I can tell you google Chrome doesn't warn of malicious software when I visit your site. You can also submit to Google Search Console which should alert of any issues.

We had the similar problem. I posted under the subject "Recent issues with circumventing systems and malicious software" if you want to read my case.

But for us, and someone else who posted the same in the last day potentially because of trademark language, I think it is because of certain language in our ads. We advertise tax debt which now falls under needing certification by google (even though it is not consumer debt which is what their requirements are talking about), and the use of "botox" which is classified as drug term.

I don't know for sure that this is the case for suspension or not, and Google won't tell you. I am curious if you checked your ad's approval status. Even in suspended accounts, I think you will be shown if there is language they don't like (trademark, drug, etc).

The reason I came to forums is because a google support rep said he was getting a lot of calls about this and advised us to resubmit them.

Personally, I think there has been a software glitch released into production and I am seeing a number of new posts on it in the forum.

There are multiple violations here;
  1. First, it's a  financial app, that must comply with the financial section of the Policy.
  2. The second solicitation of funds (i.e donations ) is restricted to approved institutions;
  3. And I can list some other violations
This site should be overhauled;

But we are not being flagged for either of those things?
We are FCA regulated (UK regulator)
It's a demonstration of our amazing payment process - would Google have us collect the 1p and send to ourselves? - But I take the point that it does look like a solicitation.

Please list the other violations - as before all help appreciated

Patrick. You mentioned you successfully appealed circumventing systems. 

Are you saying then, that your account(s) were suspended for circumventing systems, which was lifted, but then you were left with ad disapproval for malicious software?

That is what happened to us, in many accounts in two different MCC's, and to varying degrees. One of our website clients who is outside our mcc completely and using Smart Campaigns, had the same issue, and I have seen a couple of other people post similar in the last few days.  

MocheTLV shares some interesting ideas that may be coming into play, but know you are not alone. None of the mentioned potential issues apply to us, and yet your description sounds close if not identical to what we are experiencing.
