    I think it's pointless to devote time and energy to ruin someone elses campaign. karma, will bite u in da arse. instead, think of ways to knock down the competition and build your campaign 100 times better..

    That is just down right wrong, to do that on adwords, shit is expensive! Plus if the person knows anything about PPC and conversion he will soon know something is up. Usually when this happens you can content the Big G and complain, in some cases they will credit your acct.

    --Focus on making ya money, not trying to destroy someone else's...it's counterproductive don't you think?

    You are costing people money, don't do that at all! Do you want karma to make you and your family poor?

    its not a big problem.If he gets more than 1 click from same ip, then he can ask google that it was a click fraud, also the tracking with cookie, so unless u delete your cookies before u click again, they can know.But if u really plan to renew ip and delete cookie and keep doing for full day.He would take his campaign down and remove the keyword (assuming its not a making good roi).BUt he won't make alot of loss as his profits will cover.
    But I don't think there is anyone in the world who have knowledge about this and have enough time to do it.

    that is a big problem with google, when will google come out with a solution which will stop these people from doing it forever, I do not know. I am still waiting for a solution from google since so many years. It is really not expected out of a pro like google.

    I don't do alot of PPC anymore with google, but I was involved in mortage leads sometime ago and fell victim to false clicks on a regular basis. Those clicks are expensive, and in my experience Google stepped up many times on refunding for bad clicks. Of course I'm sure there are a lot of factors that go into it - how much $ your spending, keyword cost, and how blatant obvious the fraud is.

    This is the sort of shit that I hate. You will never be successful if you have to stoop to such low levels. Instead of trying to eliminate your unlimited competition one by one, how about putting together a campaign that is better than all of theirs. I hope click frauders get sued because they ruin it for everyone.
