7th case of a Weekend AdWords Phishing Ad for AdWords account logins

Hello,

 

As I searched just now "adwords community" from my location in Bucharest, Romania, I spotted a new AdWords phishing Ad in the Top 1 position.

 

The display URL is www.google-acounts.com/Adwords

which redirects to this final URL http://adworrd-gooogle-com.orientme.com.br/Adwords/

 

So again a question pops up : how are they able to save and AdWords ad when the display URL has a different domain than the Final URL ?

 

And another big question : why is google not allocating employees for chat support during weekends, to allow people like me to report such phishing ads much faster ?

 

This attitude of "we don't care about our users during the weekends" is an important vulnerability allowing the theft of who knows how many logins.

Please hire a 24/7 security team for your own main product.

 

How embarassing is to have stuff stolen from your paying customers (their login data) from people using your own product , an AdWords Ad ! Wake up Google people and do something. It is the 7th AdWords phishing Ad I have personally seen lately.

 

 

The pshishing Ad click ID is :

@Adrian B;

Thanks.

When support channels are closed, Google has set a direct reporting channel which alerts the "phishing squat" at Google; Please use it.

I have forwarded this case Google.
