6th case of a Weekend AdWords Phishing Ad for AdWords account logins
It seems I have stumbled upon a 6-th case of AdWords ad made to collect google account IDs.
This Ad appears on many "adwords" related search terms on the first position so it poses a real danger of fooling many adwords users to collect their login data. Please forward this alert to who can stop it fast.
I hope Google has decided to assign AdWords security teams also during weekends as these cases are popping up constantly, from what I can see.

The click ID string is this :
The screenshot of the Ad is this :
This is what the user sees in the final URL :

Yes because Google AdWords personel seem inactive during the weekend , and this creates a vulnerability ,
For example I couldn't use the chat line to report this case, it is closed during weekends.
