Hi Vladimir,

 

To me it sounds like a mistake rather than a scam. The promotional codes can expire after a while and they also can't be applied to accounts that are more than 2 weeks old. If he was on holiday then it sounds like the latter reason might have occurred.

 

When you say "Google manager" do you mean an actual Google employee or someone who works on Google AdWords accounts?

I would like to explain why i call it a scam - he contacted me, and offered me terms, which i fulfilled and he did not. For me that looks like a scam.

I am not sure, but his email is @google.com.

No problem Vladimir. Once she gets the opportunity she'll check this thread now that I've tagged her in, it's just a case of holding tight for now.
