Why are you taking money for ads that has the name of one selling site, but then the link goes to other sites ?

example, and there are a ton of these ads all over the web. they use "ecrater"  link to ebay, ooni, bigcommerse, and I want it stopped now.


So you are selling ads for, pay to play, with adwords, if one uses the program to get people to find their items, and get higher up on the search engines.

On the other hand you are selling adwords, or ads, that use one company name of the same field of business for the keyword, but then the link clicks you AWAY from the site they named.



another link, second page from google home paage search for "ecrater".


ad "Ecrater‎‎ Buy Ecrater now! New eBay Buyer Protection Program."







ad "Ecrater on eBay - Low prices on Ecrater -‎‎ Free Shipping available. Buy Now!"




So whats the deal here, how many other people or sites are paying, and other sites are using keywords that redirect them AWAY from the keywords you sell.?


Just crack down and fix it please.
