Account got hacked

Recently my mother had an adwords account created with her google login information. The account is on her email, but the name and address is of someone who lives in Texas. The mastercard used for payment also has a zip code in that area. I noticed this when she received an email saying her adwords account had been suspended, while she has never created account nor knew what it was. I dont think I have anything to worry about as the passwords have been changed and the account is suspended, but why would someone want to do this? 

 

Thanks,

             Chase

Well... The hackers apparently used her card to run a campaign for their own business. Or for the "fun". Hackers have many "starnge" goals in mind... Smiley Surprised
