Ad fraud is a big problem
Even though it seems to be declining, ad fraud is still a big problem. There's a lot of great coverage on the Software Engineeering Daily podcast about ad fraud and various mitigation techniques. At the end of the day, I think CPA mitigates a lot of the problem but it'll be a long time until we're fully there.
