    Scam Scam Scam Scam. If they really sent 'relevant' traffic to your site, why would they not send 'relevant' traffic direct to the actual companies placing the adwords ads that are paying for the click? After all wouldn't they pay more for the 'relevant' traffic than greedy webmasters hoping to make 20-30c per click? Anyone who does this deserves to get their account banned.

    I was reading another forum about this website which stated that if you do a whois search, the domain name for the site wasn't registered until November 11th, but their site has testimonials proir to that date.

    sounds like a zombie scheme. 3v1l h4x0rs gain control of various servers around the web and sit on them until they have a client that needs a clicking scheme or a DOS attack. I've had those kind of guys inside my servers before and it's no fun. The clicks might not be that easy to track, but it's just a matter of a tiny coding mistake to make it obvious to google. Then again, it could be IP spoofing - which i haven't run into anything like that for a long long time, but it's not all that out of the question. The reason I mention spoofing is that they can forge the clicks without caring whether or not the web page loads.

    It seems to me that this is exactly why Google drafts its TOS so broadly on the question of fraudulent clicks. A hundred clicks on a well paying key word could be a couple of hundred dollars for virtually no sales at the adwords user end.

    Strikes me that this would bring down the wrath of Google on the publisher if they could find out the publisher volunteered for the clicks.

    The domain used for this site wasn't registered until November 11.

    Yet, the site is showing testimonial statistics from prior to November 11 - one from October even, meaning they had customers getting results before they were even in business. Unless someone can explain that, it seems the testimonial statistics are fabrications.

    Add to that, the poster who initially reported on the existence of this site has only made one post on these boards.

    And, the domain registration has false information as pointed out above.

    Proceed with caution on this one folks.

    This site is down now. I guess whoever placed their orders will never see their money again.

    It's not down, it says they are not taking any more orders right now. Must have had a bunch of takers.
