UTM tags firing before Facebook Ad runs

Hi I've recently added UTM tags to my Facebook ads which is working nicely but I noticed that GA is capturing partially filled campaign UTM tags even before I saved the ad in Facebook's Power Editor and those Facebook ads have not been scheduled to run. I'm definitely not being charged by Facebook for them. It's annoying because it's cluttering my Campaigns view. These are single session hits with 100% bounce rate and 0 time on site.


Anyone else have this problem and can someone suggest a way to stop this from happening again in the future?
