Be Aware of a Google Adwords Email Phishing Scam

One of the most recent phishing scams has surfaced in a Google Adwords email, warning recipients that their “Google Adwords campaigns may have stopped running today”. A phishing scam is designed to steal the identity of those who take action on the email. Google has confirmed that this is a fake email, and no one should click through to the link.

Our team has recently reported this to Google, and it is currently being addressed. Keep on the lookout for similar incidents in the future, and share with us any of your recent experiences in the comment field below!
