Adwords/Youtube Fraud Report - Admins Please Read

Before everyone tells me that this isn't the place to send a report, I am well aware of that.  However, I also know that this seems to be the best place to do it.  This is my 2nd time reporting this type of issue and the last time it was taken care of within hours.  Last time the fraud was in excess of $10,000, this time over $4,000.  

 

Below, I will list some of the channels that are pulling this fraud.  It is also critical to note that they always do this towards the end of the month, 2-3 days before the end of the month.  I assume, it's a tactic to avoid human review.  They create multiple accounts at a time.  

 

What they are doing is following:  they put up random videos on multiple Youtube channels, keyword stuff them and then send bot traffic to click on the ads showing next to their videos.  I know for a fact that this is fraud since the click through rates are astronomical and stick out like a sore thumb.  All of these channels need to be banned and their publisher earnings shouldn't be paid out or reversed.

Hi @Antonio G,

 

I do appreciate your opinion of this forum, however, your query related to publisher earnings seems AdSense-related.

I'd re-post the the issue in the above community.
