How do I reduce the number of 'hawkers' using up my adword $s

I receive lots of contacts from 'hawkers' drumming up their own business to 'manage my website marketing campaign' which eats up my adwords budget. Is there any way to filter them out?

Hi Marg,


Thank you for posting on our Community forum. Regarding your questions on how to filter out users/visitors who are eating up your AdWords budget, you may want to consider the Exclude IP address option. 


The Settings tab lets you exclude Internet Protocol (IP) addresses by campaign so that all ads in that campaign are blocked from computers and networks associated with those addresses.
