6th case of a Weekend AdWords Phishing Ad for AdWords account logins

Hello,

 

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.

 

I just typed again "adwords en forum" as a search term to find this community website , as I noticed the first AdWords Ad showing what is an obvious phishing URL :

 

www.adworrds-google.com/Adwords

 

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.

 

Thank you
