Big Problem

I have had my ad sense account disabled. These are the ads which are revenue-generating and which last Wendesday came to the following amount:

At that point I put through a request for payment of $100.00 - $50.00 of which was to go to Alzheimer's Research amd $50.00 to Paulding Humane Society.

Yesterday I received the following notification from google:


Google AdSense to me
show details Dec 4 (2 days ago)


While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense
account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since
keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our
advertisers in the future, we've decided to disable your account.

Please understand that we consider this a necessary step to protect the
interests of both our advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. We
realize the inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you in advance
for your understanding and cooperation.

If you have any questions about your account or the actions we've taken,
please do not reply to this email. You can find more information by


The reason they sent this is because the very next night that $101.45 jumped to over $127.00 and I have no idea why this happened. Google thinks this was done deliberately by someone (how else to explain the sudden jump in revenue?).

I have appealed this, but don't expect them to relent.

All I can do is ask them to track back the IP address of where all these clicks originated and come to the conclusion that I did not knowingly deceive them.

The reason I write about this NOW is to explain that I do NOT know how this happened. Just that it did and because it is all a moot pont now.

I even wrote google the night before, asked them to have a look at the site to makre sure there were no problems and T received the following e-mail from someone called Rose:

SwtRose has posted an answer to the question "I need someone to look at my blog please":

Bill, you are fine! By the way, I did click. ;-)

The money will be paid as promised. It won't come from google, but it WILL be paid, because I NEVER go back on a promise.

I'm not thinking too clearly right now as I've had a very busy emotional day, but I just came to catch up on what's been going on in our Bill's life and I just can't believe what I'm reading.

So you're being suspended because people have been clicking on the ads? What are they there for? Or do they believe you rigged or fixed it somehow?

I just don't get this at all, just plain nonsense and crazy.

I'm so sorry about this. Another disappointment you don't need right now.

I can't even think of anything else to say except it's just another glitch in your plans and maybe something else will come along.

Don't give up or give in to such an unfair thing.

Love you, Becks

Oh man, I'm such a dummkopf sometimes.

Some time ago I was looking at how I could make some extra cash online and kept coming across or getting emails about "get rich" with Google AdSense.

So I sent the info to my DEB and he researched it and within minutes he realized it was all a big scam. Sorry, my mind has been so boggled lately, I just didn't put two and two together and see that was what you were doing.

If you Google, Google AdSense scam, you will get all kinds of hits. It appears the only ones making money on this, are the ones that set you up, they get paid by running the ads on your site and then when it's time to pay, they do something like suspending you for some ridiculous accusation of abuse.

I truly hope you didn't have to put out any money on this.

Don't feel bad cuz I was very close to doing this myself. But one thing my DEB has tried to get me to do is no matter what the email or offer is, just type the content in Google and see what complaints have been given about the website, products, etc.

OK, back to my yard sale.

Again, sorry this happened to you.

Love ya, Becks

It's okay.


The money WILL be paid, and half of it will go to help Dementia Patients, amd another half to the Four-Footed ones!

google has ALREADY rejected my forum replies, so we may soon be going ELSEWHERE.

Please keep in touch, okay?
