"We're not telling who's stealing from you."

I am frustrated.... Calls to a certain PPC regarding their low level partners sending drive-by traffic will not reveal who is sending the junk traffic.

Calls to a third party re-seller who incentives their surfers will not tell me who their sources are.

URL tracking codes are inadequate...

Why are these people not required to reveal their partners so we can decide who to purchase from?

Example: One PPC vendor is burning approx $500 per day.
Logs account for less than $100 of this amount directly.
Their "Largest" player accounts for another $75.

One incentivizes surfers, and appears to cause the bulk of the charges, with no conversion, but could be from several sources, as they are identifed only at the macro level.

Any ideas?

Demand complete raw click data from the engine. Ask for referrer, user agent, ip and time and date stamp. Let them know you are seeing what appear to be fraudulent clicks.

Next, if the PPC doesn't help. Drop their name here and ask people how they've been able to deal with this certain ppc engine.

Finally, the easiest and most apparent option, cancel your account!

Demand complete ...

Ask for ...

If 'ask' doesn't produce the required result, then 'demand' doesn't really stand much chance. :)
