Google Cold Calling via Auto Dialer for AdWords Customers?

WebmasterWorld Google AdWords Moderator werty reports that he received to automated calls from Google's Chicago office about buying ads from Google. And I quote from the WebmasterWorld thread:

I pick up the phone and the message was slightly cut off the first time:

"Please press 1 if you spend less than $5000 per month, Please press 2 if you have the budget to spend $5000 or more per month and are interested in our Premium Services. Please press 3 if you are interested in job opportunities."

He then hit 2 and was transferred to a voice mail box in Google's Chicago office. A few minutes later, Google called him back, Google was on the caller id.

Normally, I would not trust such a thread. But this is from a legit source. I am shocked Google is doing this.
