Double Serving Ads

I have complained a few times about one particular advertiser who is double serving and jacking up the prices for all the other advertisers bidding on similar keywords. I am looking for a place to report double serving ads, but I can't find one, so I am posting this here.

 

Please check these advertising landing pages: 

http://shragerlawfirm.reachlocal.net/

http://www.shragerlawfirm.com/?gclid=CNaf7ruw_L0CFenm7AodC2EAlA

 

When I type "david shrager" I see both of these websites come up in the search results. 

 

IMPORTANT: 

There are TWO David Shragers in Pittsburgh, PA. One is David J. Shrager, the other is David S. Shrager. Please note that it is the 'S' Shrager that is causing the double serving ads. The 'J' Shrager is only putting out one ad that goes to one website. 

 

These are the ads that appear for this search:

  1. Attorney David S.Shrager - Top-Rated Pittsburgh Attorney‎
    Adwww.shragerlawfirm.com/DavidShrager
    •  
    •  
    (412) 391-3754
    Charged with a Crime? Call 24/7.
  2. Defense Attorney - Law Offices of David Shrager
    Adwww.davidshrager.com/‎
    •  
    •  
    (412) 567-2496
    Criminal Defense Lawyers. Call Now.

This also happens when I Google "DUI Lawyer Pittsburgh"

One ad takes me here: http://shragerlawfirm.reachlocal.net/Pittsburgh-Criminal-Defense/DUI-Drunk-Driving/

and another ad takes me here: 

http://www.shragerlawfirm.com/Pittsburgh-Criminal-Defense/DUI-Drunk-Driving/?gclid=COa6rOmx_L0CFa1j7...

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!

ALSO - These links may not even work because Google said it "fixed the incorrect URLs" before allowing me to post the last message.

Thanks, I posted my question there. Pretty sure that's where I posted it months ago.

It takes a while. I would re-post / resubmit the request for investigation. This seems to be a clear violation.
