Hi Joseph,


Yes, you can be charged for any clicks within your account.


You can go to the dimensions tab and change the drop down menu and explore: Geographic, User Locations and Distance to gauge how often the rogue clicks are happening. You can sort the columns by clicks, which will make reviewing these metrics easy.


Also, you would want to determine if you have your settings correct. Go to a campaign and then click on Settings tab/All Settings and look at your targeted locations... and the Location Options (advanced) and see what you are using. Take a look at this information to understand the options presented to you and how they work for or against your needs.   


Please let us know what you discover.


Kind Regards,
