Google+ page as a Landing page for adword ad

I have seen the paid ad with landing page Google.maps/plases/ect ,for a keyword, and the link is leading to Google+ page on maps for a google+ user with the service for that keyword. And from that page you can go there website, call them or get directions. Very good for that Google+ user. 

I thought that google is advertising there maps. And this is just a lucky Google+ user with good SEO and valuable google+ page that google recommend. And I think 99% of google search users will think the same. So they will trust this service much more than a regular ad. 

But when I did research, its just an regular AdWords user with sneaky strategy. He put his Google+ page as a landing page, instead of his website. 

How come this is allowed? This is very misleading to google search users.
