Limited-time ads

Timeframe ads: Advertisers only allow your ads to show for a certain period, not continuously. For example, your ad only shows for 30 minutes, then stops for 30 minutes; or has keywords that don’t show up at the same time, while your ads are still showing at all times of the day.

Another common scam in Google Ads is buying and selling pirated vouchers.
