    Google Ad Sense is when a web site owner opens an account with Google to place advertisement on their web site. When a person clicks this advertisement, the web site owner gets an average commission of .45 cents. A web site that gets a lot of traffic, they can easily make $150,000 per month.

    There are message boards claiming to be informing the public about scams being done by companies or individuals. These web sites have individuals working for them for the sole purpose of targeting companies or individuals in order to generate traffic to the web site. This method is artificially generating traffic to the web site, this is FRAUD as outlined by Google. The higher the traffic, the higher the percentage of individuals that will click onto the Google advertisements.

    Additionally, Individuals post copy right information about a company on these types of web sites; this is against the policy of the Google Ad Sense program.

    If you believe that you are being targeted by individuals on a particular web site; simply click the Ads by Google in the bottom right hand corner of the advertisement on the web site. You will be taken to a Google page, click onto: Report a policy violation regarding the site or ads you just saw

    File a report and the Google Fraud Department will investigate

    You sound very surprised. Nothing new here, people have been trying to game Adsense for many years but it never lasts long. Adsense has a very good system for detecting these sorts of schemes so don't worry about it so much.
