    One check was $21.75 and the other one was $531.90. It was part of a settlement because google misled AdWords advertisers by allowing advertising charges to exceed daily budgets that advertisers set for their ad campaigns.

    Long time ago, i set my daily budget to like $5.00 (something like that) and the next day they went WAY over my budget (more than the total, it was somewhere in the 5k range) i was pissed, but this has been LONG TIME AGO!

    Wasn't expecting this! lol

    Anyone else get something like this today?

    Hearing stories like this just comes to reinforce my believe that the notion of them being a "friendly" company is just complete and utter garbage.

    Be interested to hear if you had to pay the 5 grand?
