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.

Re: Ad fraud is a big problem
Given that losses are still in the billions of dollars, indeed it is still a huge problem. Cleaning up the pollution in the ad ecosystem entails the cooperation of all players, and continuing to make it too expensive for the bad guys to target this space.
