False advertising

I am advertising certain keywords, and a competitor is using similar keywords - which is fair enough.

The competitor, however, is advertising false prices which are lower than are available on their website. The competitor is based in the UK, and so is bound by ASA rules. I am in the process of making a complaint to the ASA.

 

I am interested to find out what Google's position is on false advertising, as this inflating bids on keywords. Does anybody know how to find out, or have a contact number to discuss it with Google in the UK?

ACcording to Google AdWords policy, information in the ad must be in coherence with What the user will meet on the landing page, ie the price must be the same
I´d send a ticket to support to have them have a look at your competitors ads
