I received my adsense check and was shocked to see it made out to the wrong payee. For months the check has been made out to my company, today it comes made out to my full name (including my middle name which I don't remember ever giving them). Under My Account Payee Information the info is still correct. What should I do?

For some reason, I think it has gotten my adwords info and adsense info mixed up.

If you can't cash or deposit the check, just contact Google about it.

At least one other person reported this same problem with the most recent checks sent. Not sure what changed to cause this though.

I am having the same problem - I just emailed G to reissue to check to the right payee. Waiting for an answer.

Soona99, do you have 2 accounts by any chance?

I cashed it since it is made out to me personally. I think there was another person whose check was made out to an adwords account he closed a year ago.

there was a message on the adwords login page a few days ago about a re-unification on all the Google logins one had.

They must have got carried away with it!

This happened to me a few months ago. I wrote them and they changed it back without any fuss -- or any explanation how this could have happened in the first place.

Ya, the Unification Theory has been very difficult to get right.

I recieved my check 3 days ago and the name printed on the check was not mine but my website name!

My bank will not accept it!

Since my site does not generate much adsense revenues i kept payments on hold for more than 4 months so as to accummulate enough revenue.

Now i'm not sure how long again i have to wait before they can sort out the mess.

I guess this is the answer as to why the checks are messed up this month

I also received that email, but my adwords and adsense account information is the same.
I have not received the check, but I guess, I can change it just as usual, right?
