There is an international scam operating a web site and it is advertising on Google Adwords. How can I report this as it has been going on for months? I found this company advertising as a vocational school with a location in my town. They are advertising on Google Adwords. I paid $2,600 for a class. I showed up at the 'school' for my first day and the office was empty! I called my state AG's office and Dept of Education and was told this company is a fraud and many people have gotten scammed. They are operating out of Barcelona, Spain. The ads are still appearing on Adwords. My bank reversed the credit card charge thank goodness but Google needs to stop this madness.


The company is "European Bartender School"


Their adwords links are


The web site is 


The office is empty and their dorm living quarters is an abandoned house that is in foreclosure.


The Dept of Ed has sent cease letters to several of their addresses but the mail gets returned. My phone calls I got from them were from Barcelona and my credit card was charged from Barcelona.


You can see on the web site their local Las Vegas, NV phone number is not a number in the UK with the country code 44.
