Last year I moved to India. I closed my Swiss bank account and therefore gave up my Swiss credit card. In my Google Wallet account I added a new card and made it the default. I thought I'd done everything I needed to do to continue using this domain name. I was wrong.
Over the past few weeks I have received many emails from the Google Apps Team. You can see an example of one of these below:
I did what anyone would do - I clicked the Log in button. This took me to a log in screen where I was able to enter my password and this brought me to the response you will see at the top of this blog - "Invalid Request". How can this be, I asked myself? Who could I ask to help me to fix this problem. I have to admit that at the start of this problem I thought it would be an easy fix. Three weeks on I'm pulling my hair out and resigning myself to the fact that I may end up losing everything I have in my Google Apps account. I have an ordinary Google account, not a business one where I can ask for telephone or email help. I have tried to contact a person at Google for help, but so far have not been successful.
This is what I have done. I have tried using different browsers and I have tried logging in from different locations and even from different countries. I have tried 2 different computers (Mac and PC) and an iPad. I have cleared my cache and deleted my history. I have made sure I have no other Google accounts open. I have checked online and googled "Invalid Request" but while I can see others have had exactly the same problem I cannot find their solution. Finally I am turning to my readers. In the past day over 4,000 of you have read my blog. In total over 400,000 people have read my posts and some of those people have read more than once. Surely someone has the answer to this problem. Maybe that someone is a Google employee who knows someone who can help me. Maybe that is someone who is a teacher and who has experienced this before and can tell me what he or she did to fix the problem?
I don't know what will happen next. If the domain name ceases to work in a week's time, please try to log onto my old URL: transformingtechnology.blogspot.com
Fingers crossed this won't be necessary and that someone will come to my aid before then.
Thank you for anything you can do to help.
