Hey everyone!

I placed an ad with a $2 daily budget for a YouTube video of mine. Today I woke up to being charged $370 for 19,000 views!! How could this happen? I'm totally in panic mode and don't know what to do. I have emailed support, but no reply yet.

Hi @Asdghik M,


You will not be charged and Google will take care of it.


I have seen it happen quite often with client accounts (I am a badged Google Partner and agency owner... not a Google employee). A few months ago, one of our accounts had a video campaign set up to show a YouTube video with a daily budget of $5.00 (five US dollars) yet on a Friday and Saturday night they (Google AdWords) spent over $700 (seven hundred US dollars) and the amount showed throughout the account (campaigns, ads, billing, etc.) and when the end of month (billing cycle ended), the $700+ simply dropped off and the account charged our payment cycle as it normally would. 


We just consider these Google gifts, truly. 


Kind Regards,
