Hey, over the years I've helped countless people here, now I need some help.

If you work at Google or have a friend who does, please PM me here and I'll explain.

For anyone curious, it's a google ID Catch-22 and after going round and round forever, I've come to the conclusion that need an inside human to help break the cycle.


(Mods) I know this isn't the right place, but it's where I'm best known, so please bear with me for a few days on the off chance that it reaches someone who can help, and I'll delete it myself.

I've been caught in that nightmare, almost went with the Apple ecosystem after the Google customer service rep told me since you don't pay for Google services there's very little they can do if you lock yourself out. I got lucky since my phone was linked, but it still took a few days and I had to email them after my account recovery options failed.

You are pretty much locked out permanently if you never printed off the emergency access codes, or setup the recovery questions.

I do know of someone, but Google is a big company and what you are asking about may be a long way from his particular silo. I'll message you though.

The irony here is that I'm trying to respond to an offer to buy ads. So, one hand knows who I am and is trying to sell me something, but the other doesn't and is standing in the way.

I probably don't need the name of the right guy, just someone who knows someone, who might know someone, and so on until I get someone in the right place.
