    Adsense click fraud
    Is this real or crap? I had adsense on my site but stopped a while back and was thinking of paying to do my site but I'm a poor boy and can't afford someone doing this to me. Can't you go to jail or somethig if you get caught?

    Posting an article on how to cheat adsense is not good! -url removed

    Cool
    Yes, you could probably go to jail for generating a massive amount of click-fraud, but most click-fraud is punished by simply de-activating the account, not paying out earnings and occasionally lawsuits.

    Sorry didn't want to stir up trouble, thought others here might be using adsense to promote their site and should see this. Didn't want others trying to make an honest dollar to get ripped off. I couldn't afford it!! I wasn't sure if it was even real or not.

    Again sorry, guess my name fits.

    Thanks for the insight Tim. I posted the the site hopeing that if it was real someone could learn from it and do something about it. Now thanks to you I did something I should have done to start with ]Read, Read, Read and learned it would not have helped.
