Hi japalish,

 

I think the best and quickest solution is to get the company to get access to their AdWords account so the numbers can be fixed. Do they even have access to the account to make any changes?

 

It will be in one of 4 places. 

 

The ad copy itself (under the ads tab and can be edited there)

Call Extensions (under the ad extensions tab)

Location Extensions (under the ad extensions tab)

Sitelinks Extensions (under ad extensions, not likely, but I have seen numbers here before)

 

Let me know fi you have any other questions
