Adbrite.com Complaint - Click Fraud

Review by Bob3251 on 2008-09-15
SAN FRANCISCO -- I stopped advertising with Adbrite in March 2008 because I noticed that I never received any sales of my products when I advertised with Adbrite. A few days ago July 27, 2008, I decided to check my account at Adbrite and was shocked to find that several of the ad campaigns had somehow been turned back on and they placed $100's of dollars of charges on my credit card during the past 4 months. To keep the most recent charges from being added to my credit card, I canceled my card and I filed a claim to my credit card company against Adbrite.

I asked the credit card customer service person to run a search in google for adbrite + fraud and she saw (like me) that there are tons of posts on the Internet about ClickFraud at Adbrite.

The customer service representative from my credit card company decided to open an investigation of Fraud against Adbrite. And after investigating, my credit card company refunded all of my money, going back 6 months!

Good for you. The move to go directly to your credit card instead of fighting it out with Adbrite saved you a lot of grief.

Bob, agree with PassingBy, you did the right thing. A large number of these SEO houses are taking money with nothing to show for it from people like yourself. You're better off dealing with Google Ad Words, Yahoo etc yourself. You won't be paying a premium and the results will be better.
