    Please let us know. I was tempted to sign up with a bogus account, but decided not to bother. I am curious how they say an autosurf program will help ad revenue.

    Why not just report the site to Google, Digital Point is not Google folks :eek:

    I know it is fun but this is not the place to police the internet for Adsense TOS problems :cool:

    Did you guys report this to Google or not :confused:

    I reported it to google, but I'm also curious what they care claiming, as they come right out and say they won't tell you anything if you don't sign up.

    I have no desire to get into the nastyness, I was just curious

    Well since live links were left here I am sure he or she will be here to explain the scam soon, but it works like this.

    We give you a list of sites to surf and click ADSENSE on and the other members do the same and click on your sites.

    The more sites you click on the more your sites Ads get clicked on.

    It is the click fraud co-op :eek:

    This is not any different than the click fraud rings that Google deals with in India and China everyday, just a different flavor, they know about these operations and will deal with them.

    These are just some kids with a pipe dream Wendy :p :eek: :p

    well that i would get, but it said it was an autosurf program, so I wasn't sure.

    Out of curioustiy, if they themselves don't have adsense,can google do anything?

    edit: i do agree with you AC, things get wayyyyyy out of control on these adsense fraud threads. I do try not to post to most of them, but you are correct, DP is not google :)

    Autosurf meaning they highjack your browser sort of like a spyware program does and that is programed to go to their co-op members.

    So everyone gets autosurfware and it highjacks their browser in an attempt to fool Google.

    Hell yes Google can catch them, they are the data mining champs :eek: :p :eek:

    WEEOO WEEOO WEEEOOO.

    This is a jackpot find and also represents the a huge possible threat to Google advertisers and publishers. These crackpots should be dealt with swiftly and criminally.

    Networks are simply robbing AdWord clients, diluting advertiser's confidence.

    How is it a jackpot find Homer? They just got started and have zero members in all probability and Google has seen these scams a thousand times before, they are nothing new.

    Click Fraud rings have existed since PPC started and they are all over India.

    Do a search on the keywords.

    PPC click fraud India

    See what you come up with.

    Not sure what your question is. What part of my post did you not understand?

    The new generation (google) PPC programs are still in their infancy. I am sure that these finds here today represent a fraction of the ones that are already well founded and have been robbing us for a while.

    About 8 months ago in my AdWords account I went to bed at 11:00 PM and my account was under $20...woke up in the morning and it was approaching $500. This is the type of crap it comes from.

    This needs to be extinguised now as it will hinder/ kill the growth of this industry.
