    change it

    if it has happend more than twice to the same account doug dump it and re apply under G's T&C for adwords... it is unlikely they will trace it... maybe... there are 3 pieces of C++ software scrapping google for linked back Adword accounts and bruteforcing the admin passwords held on actual hard drives on unprotected connections... fax googleplex and get them to swap out your user names and password pal ;)
