On Steam you can trade your in-game items for money and on a website you can deposit your skins in for money which you can trade for items, turns out this website is a scam and Google for some reason was advertising it making me believe the website was legit and in turn lost me 110 USD and I have made a complaint about this website <edited by a Community Manager as noted below>  and the advertising was saying this website was legit I have screenshots of the advertising

Google Ad's Lets Say Scammed Me

Hi there,

 

AdWords is an advertising platform where 3rd parties can run ads via Google.

 

Google doesn't endorse or guarantee the products/services of their millions of customers.

 

It is like if saw an ad on TV for a product that turned out to be a dud, would you contact the TV station?

 

Certainly contact Google support to inform if an ad breaks guidelines:

...but ultimately your complaint is with the merchant, not Google.

Hi @All Hacks N,

 

Really sorry to hear.

 

I agree with Rob completely. I would add that no advertising ensures, promotes or gives validity to ANY website, product, service or person. Advertising is a paid placement of ads, nothing more. Please provide screenshot so we can review it. 

 

Further, when I click on your website link, my security software kicks in and blocks me from even seeing the website. You should look into better security software to add another layer of protection to your web surfing. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
