Payments taken from Google without paper trail

I have had money taken from my business bank account labelled AFS re: Google Ltd. It is Direct Debit. I receive no paperwork or email in connection with this at all and am not currently running Google Adwords through my account.  What could it be?  I have cancelled it. I don't actually think it is reasonable for Google to DD my account without a paper trail or without asking permission.

Hi Jamila,

At first sight, your post looks like a poem. Is it intentional?

Regarding the query: it's unlikely that they debited your bank account without good reason. Chances are you forgot to disable one or two of your campaigns that got some impetus recently to accrue performance. To clarify, you are advised to sign in, click on the cog in the upper right corner and select Billing / Transaction history so you can find the causes.
