When trying to open my Google Adsense account (attached to email@example.com), I got a message saying:
Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. While reviewing your application, we noticed that your account information matches a currently approved AdSense account associated with firstname.lastname@example.org. Because our policies do not permit multiple accounts, we're unable to accept your new application at this time.
If you'd like to add email@example.com as a login to your approved account, you can do so by following these steps:
Sign in to the AdSense account associated with firstname.lastname@example.org at www.google.com/adsense.
Once you've invited email@example.com as a login to your account, please check that address for an email invite and follow the instructions to add this new login.
The problem is, the account firstname.lastname@example.org does not belong to me!
Why do I need to log into the account of another person, in order to get access to AdSense with my google account?
EDIT: I tried to use the login trouble-shooter. This is what I got; none of the options match the message that I actually get.
