If you are a Google AdSense publisher that opts for the checks to be mailed to you as opposed for an EFT (direct deposit) solution, like me, you may notice a misprint on your November checks.
Google sent me and other publishers emails with the advanced notice:
It’s come to our attention that the messaging printed on your November AdSense check was incorrect. Please be assured that this issue is purely the result of a printing error and will not affect your ability to deposit these earnings into your bank account.
The misprint seems to be in the paystub section of the check and should not impact you depositing those funds into your bank account.
The payment details on the paystub section of your check should have read as follows:
THIS CHECK IS FOR YOUR EARNINGS AS PART OF THE GOOGLE ADSENSE PROGRAM. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE EMAIL ADSENSE-SUPPORT@GOOGLE.COM
Instead, the following message was printed on your check:
CREDIT NOTE -VAT OVERCHARGE BETW. 1 JAN 2004 & 22/11/07 IF YOU NEED DETAILS OF THIS VAT PLEASE EMAIL GOOGLE@BDOSX.IE WITH CUSTOMER REF
