Beware of More Google AdWords Phishing Scams

Over the past few days, I have personally received about six emails from a phishing scam asking me to renew my Google AdWords account. The email originates from [email protected] but is really masked from the server pacobond.com, I believe.

The renewal link goes to http://yms-words.com/adwords/select/Login.htm, which is clearly not Google, so don't go there.

Here is a screen capture of one of those emails:

More Google AdWords Scams

Annoys me how they ask again, at the bottom, for:

Please remember to input your AdWords username and password correctly NOT your email and password

So, beware of these emails.

A Google Groups thread has a warning from an official Google rep that these fake emails are going out. Do not be fooled by them.

What do I do if I receive a suspicious email claiming to be from AdWords?
