    I think someone did, about an hour and a half ago... ;)
    Now let's hope that the abuse team sees it, before someone takes GayDude's advice and posts there, tipping them off, and giving them a chance to take down the list of advertisers that have been stolen from. That would be a shame, to let someone this blatant get away with it.

    You dont think I should warn them? Are you crazy? I pay for those ads, and reported or not, I want them to stop. We are supposed to sit back and fork out money while those jerks click away, just so Google can see it? No way.

    I not only posted, I sent an email to the admin.

    I reported him.

    I almost posted on his forum.... I had something nasty all typed up, but I though better of it. Why warn the jerk, and give him a chance to delete the thread. I sent google a text copy of his post and the url. (hopefully it's cached, it case he deleted the thread)

    Is it possible to email one of the members (using their profile) to tell them ? Maybe they can pass the word that this is wrong?

    OK I sent in my report. I hope everyone reports these idiots. With enough reports, even though they have deleted the proof, adsense will with any luck, suspend their adsense account.

    good thing the page is cached.

    I just sent the cached url in to google just in case since the thread is deleted.

    Well, SiteExpress, you got your way. The posts are down.

    But the ads are still up. Do you think they have stopped clicking? :rolleyes:

    It would have been nice to bring in a few of the defrauded advertisers, show them the proof, and see if they got their money back.

    Why don't you contact your new friends (you did them a favor :p ), tell them how they can get rid of the cache, and let them know about the other posts... :cool:

    Is the site and the person who started that thread not related and the person who started the thread maybe just wants to screw with the site owner?
