I've contacted Google AdSense and we arranged to have those SMS scans removed from our rotation. I was also told how to find the URL for flash ads - so it's all good from now.

Hey Mauricio,

the SMS scams have come back :(



It's apparently a google uploaded advert, but....I see that in the coding it's a doubleclick.net ad?

Whoops, above I meant, the Win an iPhone 3g, it goes to the usual scam website and has the $3 per text, then they charge you $3/3 times a week till you text NO to them.

Another timwe.com scam

Thanks... Doubleclick is a Google company, didn't you know that?

Google AdSense let us now block some categories. Shame "SMS Scams" is not one of them. If you have Firefox and Firebug you can just hover the mouse over the ad to see where it links to - then I can block that URL.
