Call Fraud

Hello, I've been running call extensions as the only clickable action on mobile devices. I have recently noticed that I have been generating a LOT of calls via robo dialers. In fact over 29 individual numbers were responsible for 1800 calls in the last 30 days alone.


My question is "How does Google deal with Call Fraud?"

Hello Tyler,


Welcome to the AdWords Community.


The numbers you have mentioned seem to be alarming but I would however want to ask you these..


Are you using a Google Forwarding number or your Local Number? If you're using a local number with the call extension, then are you sure your are not using this number anywhere else so people could find?
