WVPROXY - Scam

Hi, 

 

Recently we noticed an ad was appearing on google search when you type in our company name "WANTIRNA AUTOMOTIVE" when you click on this adwords ad, it brings up a site that is identical to ours at http://www.wantirnaautomotive.com.au, but this site is hosted on WVPROXY.Com, the address is wantirnaautomotive.com.au.wvproxy.com. This site is a copy of our own site but the contact number is different. We did not commission this adwords ad and it is not part of our currently running ads. When customers call the number it is disconnected. I am not sure who would go through all this trouble to mislead our business but I would like someone from google support to contact me to remove the add. I have called numerous times to GOOGLE sales and support and still waiting on a call back.

Hi Wantirna,

If you're wanting to speak to someone on the phone, your best bet is to reach out to the customer support number in your country: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1385067

If someone is running ads to your site and you haven't authorized it, you can also report it here: https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/feedback
