Warning!!! Google Adwords Phishing E-mails

by Alexandre Valois 4 replies
I opened my e-mails this morning to what was a first for me; Adwords phishing e-mails.

I have no idea if they're just a new type of phishing mails or if I've simply been happy-go-lucky so far, but it's the first time I hear about them, so I thought I'd post a heads up here.

Be careful everyone.

    Yeah,

    I got one this morning too.

    It looks like their grabbing email addresses from whois information. I noticed right away that it wasn't addressed to my Adwords email.

    They email asked me to click on a link to update my information. The html source of the email revealed domains that were not related to Google.

    Thanks for the heads up, Alexandre.

    All The Best,


    Tony

      They certainly are relentless, aren't they?
      It seems like these people could find a better use of their time.
