Alert: Exclude these two publishers
We have been seeing a large uptick in form fraud on Google adwords content network - Publishers.
Essentially companies are hiring people to click on ads within their site, and then complete conversions such as a form request.
The contact information being submitted is valid, it is what they have found in public records such as whitepages.com and other resources. Thus the info passes most filters, as it is valid, it's just somebody elses information.
I want to be clear that I do not accuse these two publishers of being the ones intentionally conducting this type of activity. What I do know is that through their websites we have identified a great deal of form fraud.
I highly recommend that you add these two sites to your exclude list and be aware that they are replicating this site under different domain names.
Has anyone else experienced an increase in form fraud?
