Rating: OH BOY, someone picked the wrong guys to mess with.. Here is the first scam I have seen that targets Google Customers, and what is worse I came close to not catching this one. I DID however follow my cardinal rule and put the cursor on the link and read the ACTUAL DESTINATION. But the real kicker.. was the email address.. LMAO... yeah Google is sending billing info through a competitors email.

Dear AdWords Customer,

Your ads have stopped running because we were unable to process your billing information.
To activate your account and start running your ads, enter your billing information.

In order to activate your account and start running your ads, enter your billing information.
Pease sign into your account at, and update
your billing information. ( The link actually went to: ) Notice that it is NOT a .com or a .US routing, but a CN routing which is outside the US.  The address is soooo close but if you pay attention you should have caught this. IF You did not then you need to close your credit card immediately and notify Google and other companies that you use if for online.

Once your account is reactivated and your billing information has been processed,
any your ads and campaigns can begin running immediately on Google.
