    I've spent $47,000 on adwords so far this year and I've yet to see a credit for click fraud. At least when i advertised on Yahoo they would send me emails and credits for click fraud on a monthly basis.

    Another thing, tonight my impressesion for most of my keywords are in the thousands. Usually, 6hrs after midnight my impressions are down in the double digits but tonight its up in the thousands for most of the keywords. Its as if somebody has deliberately refreshed page keywords thousands of times without clicking on any ads. Needless to say, my bid prices are way up and my CTR is like 1% WTF! My CTR for all keywords is usually hovering at around 12%

    Unreal

    They have been good to me about credits, Try calling them and seeing whats up. You might also be getting screwed by A click circle, those have been going on like crazy.

    It can depend on competitors, competitors can just click your ads to fuck you over.
