11th case of a Weekend AdWords Phishing Ad for AdWords account logins

Hello,

 

Just a couple of hours after reporting an AdWords Ad which was leading o a phishing page simulating the AdWords login page, another one appeared. I reported it with the dedicated form for phishing Ads but who knows how many more similar can appear.

 

As I am searching "adwords romania" , this phishing AdWords Ad sits on the right hand side with the same strange display URL "adwords.adwords.adwords.adwords.adw... " and the description lines copied from the genuine Google Ad saying "Start Advertising Today.Grow Your Business Online." . On a second search it also appears on top, above the genuine Google  AdWords Ad (see screensho below)2nd-phishing-adwords-ad-on-top.png

 

What is new to this AdWords phishing Ad is the domain used in the click string below , this morning was stockpair.com now it is  buddyrents-texas.com .

The end of the clickstring looks like this &adurl=http://trackmaster.ga/buddyrents/%3Furl%3Dhttp://buddyrents-texas.com%26id%3D1

It is the first time that I get to see 2 versions of these Ads today.

 

As I click the Ad it sends me to the same domain as final URL which is freoos.com , this is the landing page :
