I have had two issues where I have been charged 6 times which comes out to 600% than my Max CPC. 

Is this correct ?? Does that usually happen

Hi @Dinkar M,

 

The only possibilities if you are using bid adjustments/Automated rule or automatic bidding.

I use Bid Adjustments (Manual) and that has been done for 15%.

No sane person will have a Bid Adjustment for 600%

is there any recent keyword changes that you might have made? 
or are you using ECPC or any other automated bidding?
