Abnormal # of Clicks

Hi, at this point of the day I usually just get about 5-10 clicks on my ads but to my horror there are about 50 clicks already based on a tracking script I installed. And it appears that the clicks are being made on one particular ad by the same person. I dunno if I am being sabotaged but it's gotten me very worried. Should I go ahead and inform Google or simply ignore it?

It can never really hurt to inform google, especially if something really suspicious like this is happening.

They'll know anyway, but it shows that it's not you stupidly trying to pull the wool over their eyes.

From my point of view report this to google immediately to secure your side.

Thanks.. I have reported it to Google and included the affected advertiser. It's just weird. The clicks happened every 30 sec - 3 minutes.
