Why Does Mobile Ad Fraud Happen?

Advertisers are finding more restricted inventory to devote their bigger budgets, cash which may fall to the hands of fraudsters. Second, a lack of business action in fighting fraud implies, for now, a criminal is less likely to be captured and can behave with marginally more impunity.
