Ad fraud is a common problem. We will examine the perpetrators of this type of fraud. Anura's ad fraud detection solution can help protect your advertising investments.

The Main Perpetrators of Ad Fraud

Ad fraud can be perpetrated by various actors, ranging from individuals to large-scale criminal organizations. The most common offenders include:

Cybercriminals and Fraudsters

These malicious actors often use sophisticated techniques such as click farms, botnets, and other malicious software to generate fake traffic, clicks, and impressions. Their primary goal is to make money through fraudulent means, either by siphoning off advertising budgets or by selling their fraudulent traffic to other parties.

Dishonest Publishers and Ad Networks

Some publishers and ad networks, driven by the desire to maximize profits, may knowingly or unknowingly participate in ad fraud. They might inflate their traffic numbers, use click farms to generate fake clicks or impressions, or otherwise manipulate their ad inventory to increase revenue at the expense of advertisers.


In some cases, competitors might engage in click fraud to deplete their rivals' advertising budgets or tarnish their reputation. They aim to exhaust their competitor's marketing resources by clicking on their competitor's ads or deploying bots to do the same. This makes it more challenging for their competitor to succeed in the digital advertising space.
