If you're seeing ads that are not displayed by the Preview Tool, it's my understanding that these ads have been targeted to show on your site specifically.
In my short AS experience, these things go in cycles. One of my sites was bombarded with targeted ads a few weeks ago, some more relevant than others. I filtered some but let some of them run. They went away and I haven't had any lately...
Unfortunately things like this always seem to happen from late Friday through Sunday, when there is no AS support around to help.

Yup I'm also seeing a sudden flurry of totally off target ads - receptionist and resume ads on a music production site?! Never seen them before!
I did start testing section targeting yesterday, which appeared to fix my Free Spammy Stuff ad problem, replacing with on topic ads site wide.... but this morning everything has been turned on its head!
I do see quite a few on target ads through my pages, but many, including all the overview pages, front page etc are WAY off.
