Watch out for AdWords Phising emails

Just to warn you all that people are now starting to send phising emails saying that “your ads have stopped running” in an effort to entice you to give your adwords login details to them.

The email looks convincing to the unwary eye but the phrase
Click here to confirm that your campaigns are up and running 100% at this time.
links to the website
http://adwords.google-og.com/
which is nothing to do with Google!

Our advice is never to click on any links that lead you to a login page – even if they appear to be from a trusted source. Instead type in the web address directly and login that way.
