Click Fraud Crook Emails Prospects

    May 17, 2005

Tim Yang posts an interesting conversation that he’s been having with an Indian Adsense Click Fraudster who contacted him to see if he’d be interested in making a quick buck via an army of fraudulent clickers in India.

Here’s the first of numerous emails Tim was sent:


I got your email address from your site by Google search, while being interested in Adsense. At present you have 12 Adsense advertisements on your site. I have an offer for you. Which is that I am capable of giving you 1000+ different traffic to your site per day – and all of them would click on all the Adsense advertisements. For all these clicks you would be able to earn a good amount per day. My offer is that I would give you that 1000+ different traffic to your site in exchange of 50% of earnings of their total clicks. If you are interested, please let me know.

Thanking you, Sanjay Das.’

It is interesting that those running these schemes are becoming more organized and brazen in their schemes. This is the third instance I’ve heard of of this type of approach being made to bloggers. The concern is that genuine adsense publishers will suffer as a result.
