These results were a part of a recent study by TribeOS and Fuse Insights. As alarming as it is, that 2/3 of marketers are not aware of what is mobile ad fraud, although it is an estimated problem costing marketers globally $5.8 Billion in 2019, these figures are congruent with our industry experiences.
