I used to have a Google Adsense account long ago somewhere in 2006 when I had my online store. I registered under a hotmail account. I didn't care much about it anyway until recently. I logged into my Adsense account and I was asked to use a Google account. So I transferred my hotmail account to my google account X. It went well but I found out the payee name is not my full name. From all the googling and readings, I found out that I am not allowed to edit my payee name because my account was registered under Malaysia. The only way is to close the account and register a new one.
Closing Adsense account is also a hassle. I had to answer two security questions which is what is the first day/date of my page impressions and how many numbers of page impressions. So after all the googling and readings, I got my date and the number. So glad I got it and I thought I have successfully closed the account but noooooooo. They emailed me saying that I have a balance in my account which was still on hold. They gave me another link to close the account if I am willing to forgo the balance. So, I did and it was successful! Bear in mind, once you close an account, you are not allowed to use the same google account (in my case, which is google account X) to register.
So, to register a new account, I used google account Y. I just received an email from Google Adsense as follow:
