Today, we are going to hear a story about a guy named Aaron Greenspan, who sued AdSense for disabling his account and won the case. Google Adsense team has been disabling many accounts to protect other publishers and advertisers interest. But, at times, they are not 100% true, and many people lose their hard earned Adsense income because of Adsense account disable problem.
Google Adsense is said to be the ruler of contextual ads because no matter what Google will keep serving your ad space with advertisements, provided you have valid Google Adsense account, else you have to switch to Adsense alternate program.
This story is about Aaron Greenspan. One day Greenspan received this email from Adsense team

Greenspan was shocked and amazed about it. He was very sure that he has never indulged in any fraudulent method. Like any other man, he tried to contact Google Adsense team by several ways: Email, Adwords team, Google Adsense forum. He tried everything one can think of, but he was unable to get in touch with them.
He had almost $721 in his account but due to Google Adsense policies, he was not liable to receive the payment. I have seen similar issues with many of my blogger friends whose Google adsense account got disapproved all of a sudden, and all their hard earned money was lost.
Aaron didn’t give up and he filed a case against Google Adsense team. After lots of arguments, he won. Google Adsense had to pay 721$ +40$ (Court fees) = 761$ to Greenspan.
