Does Google Analytics spam create 'clicks' that I am being charged for?

In Google Analytics for Adwords Express, I am getting reports of "Secret.ɢoogle.com You are invited! Enter only with this ticket URL. Copy it. Vote for Trump!" etc, in the Language field, which are clearly not coming from potential customers.
If these are being counted as chargeable clicks by Google, then my ad-campaign is being fraudulently charged.
Please can you clarify if I am being charged for this spam?

Hi @Nicholas L,

 

No, you are not charged for this spam. In fact, that spam is not even visiting your website or touching your campaigns or website in any way. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
