Me and my family opened a business to support my family (parents) as they are close to retirement with little money. We put all the money saved up, sleepless nights, worked extremely hard to get the business up and running. In the past 3 months, we got approached by 2 competitors trying to shut us down, first claim we stole their google ad title, which is a generic term we used (ex: best restaurant), the other tried to shut down our website claiming we using the same font and color on his website. They both failed at their attempt and tried to threaten us to give them the profits we made. When all their attempts failed, they or at least one of them has a google adwords bot clicking our ads every single day costing us 10 times what we would normally spend on the ads, so we have been running in the negative because of it. We believe in karma, so we do not want to click their ads back yet, we tried to use IP address blocking services such as clickcease, but they change the IP address every 3 clicks to be undetected. So we are really running out of money and we might shutdown just because of them. We need help to stop this, we are not asking to do anything unethical or hurt them, but we just want to be able to advertise without going bankrupt because of their bot. Clickcease has all the evidence to support that they are just clicking our ads. Sorry for the long post, but wanted to share most of the details. We even tried to get a lawyer involved, but did not work. Please advice ASAP.
