Third Party IT Repair Services & Tech Support Ads Banned By Google Ads

Today while trying to launch some PPC Campaign for a Repair Service for my business, I was met by a RUDE SHOCK due to a policy change in Google Ads.

Each time I tested keywords such as 'iphone repair dubai' 'data recovery dubai', I was greeted with this unfamiliar message 'This candidate is not permitted to show ads in your targeted location.', as shown in the image below:

After much searching and researching, I finally found out that IT Repair Services, Tech Support, both online or offlline has been banned by Google Ads globally for any 3rd party company. Meaning unless you are the real vendor/manufacturer of the product, you aren't allowed to display Ads providing service or support for that product. Please check the links I've listed below for further clarification. Hard pill to swallow, leave alone digest, but that's what seems to be the case at the moment. And I guess this is the result of all those Indian Tech Scammers, who have been targeting mostly Americans. Because of them now all have to suffer! :-(
