Competitor Double Serving

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Can anyone advise on the following:

 

A competitor advertises the same service using two different websites to occupy positions 2 and 3 in SERP.

It's the same company using two different websites.

 

They are doing this for most of their services and have bought a number of websites to allow them to occupy two positions in Adwords.

 

Is this double serving? I have reported this to Adwords many times and there is never any action taken.

 

If it's not double serving, is it safe for me top do the same?
