    Are you sure that Google served you those ads? You saw them on Googles search page? Youtube? Where exactly?
    I also suggest you get yourself an ad blocker.
    Also, I don't think anyone but the advertiser is responsible for their ads but I could be wrong.

    yes I am, its google that does these adds, the blue triangle means its them, links back to google. its the AdSense program all the fraud sites use

    You even have 'choices' too - ie non and the data ends up at the nsa eventually, whilst your card number gets sent to Lagos. great thanks.

    I used to work in payments and I would not give card agreements to these companies so I don't know why google gives them adds.

    I ask again, which page did you see these ads on?
    Which 'blue triangle' are you talking about? I think you are confused.
    Google may have served the ads but they most definitely didn't create them, but I am yet to be convinced that they served them.

    in short the fraud companies use Google AdSense

    here's a page by someone on adsense fraud
    http://www.sofizar.com/google-adsense-fraud.php

    in the uk I really question if companies that offer bogus payments in exchange for your card number are allowed to trade.

    Are you sure? You don't seem to understand what you are talking about.

    Except its about something totally different.

    So I ask again, where exactly did you see the ads in question being served?

    Here in SA, I regularly get an SMS telling me I have won lots of money in some competition. It would be trivial for the police to track down such fraudsters, but it seems they do not. It would be equally trivial for the cell phone companies to track them down and block them, but they benefit from the SMS, so they don't do anything either.

    I think I need to point out that the people who offer bogus payments in exchange for your card number are not companies and are not trading. They are fraudsters and may not be resident in the UK.

    Good point, all ads with a blue triangle in the corner are google adsense, a few are fraudulent, the blue triangle leads directly to google if you click

    hence me blaming google not bing

    In Nigeria a fraud where you pay me x and I will send you x $1000 in due course is called a 419 letter. 419 being the law that bans them but google thinks they are legal in the UK... I don't think they are though.

    I have an ad blocker so I don't see ads at all.

    I'll ask you again, which page did you see these ads on. Now you mention bing, are you saying you saw them on bings website?
