Hello Fellow Bloggers, newbies and pro.

AdSense has been the Order of the day when it comes to bloggers environment all because they remain the highest paying Advertising Company and by one way or the other, every blogger wanna make some extra bucks from their blogs with the traffic flowing into their site contents.
I believe this isn’t my first or second article on Google AdSense and Yes, everyone needs some extra cash to help keep up the blogging race but most of us are just too eager to get our website been monetized with either AdSense or any other Ads Company. I was pushed to give a write up on this all because of so many scam updates I get on my Facebook timeline regarding AdSense been sold out and been snatched back to back [lol].
Most AdSense Account seller will sell to buyers with the default access mail and ask buyers to just change the password of the associated mail after they sell it out. But do you know they can easily hack you back and gain access to the account after been sold to you all because they were the one who created the mail and they know every security questions and recovery options for the mail. To avoid this, am writing this guide to keep you guys safe.
Tips To Avoid Getting Scammed When Buying AdSense Accounts
First, I need to let you know that we have many ways by which we can apply for AdSense and they are all supported by Google AdSense. We have application via the Google Mail [Gmail] or via Our Domain Custom Mail. I recently made a video on Adsense with my Facebook Fan Got, If You need this video, Add me up with my Facebook profile link [Olawale Isaac Odejide].
So lets say you are buying Adsene Account from anywhere, My first warning is that you should never buy with the seller’s mail associated to the AdSense Account but buy with your own gmail and not just only your mail alone but at the same time make sure your own mail is made as Administrator in the AdSense Account.
OK, Lets take for example webspotted.com is the seller and You wanna buy from webspotted.
For you to be on a safer side, webspotted.com should not sell the AdSense Account to you with the mail used in creating the Account, but should ask you [buyer] for your own gmail address to be invited to the account. The email you provide as a buyer will be the mail you gonna be using to login to the AdSense Account and not the sellers own.
HOT TIP: Never use an easy to guess password for your mail. All what the seller needs from you when buying adsense is just your mail and not with your password.
Like I said earlier, your email must be made an administrator by the seller and you need to check your mail box to accept the invitation otherwise its status will be pending on the sellers end. and you will be notified in your mail that your were made administrator or notify you that your access rights have been changed.
⇒ Once you accept the invitation, simply login to the AdSense Account with your own Mail
⇒ Navigate to the Gear Icon and Click on Settings
⇒ Now Navigate to the left sidebar and Click “Access and Authorization”
⇒ Click on “User Management” or use this link “https://www.google.com/adsense/app#main/manageUsers”
⇒ You should see your mail ticked as “administrator” [ If not, then the seller is a scammer, don’t buy from him/her” ]
⇒ Now unmark the sellers mail from been an Administrator
⇒ Delete the sellers mail by clicking the x icon next to the sellers mail [Make sure there is no any other mail active as administrator, Only yours should be] see below image.
CONCLUSION: Now that you have deleted the main access, you can now have full right to own the account and you are safe from been scammed.
