Scam Email: Renew Google Adwords Account Now, Or Adwords Account Will Be Deleted...
If you're a curious sort like me, and go checking your Gmail spam folder just in case any valid emails go there, maybe you saw the recent email warning you to renew your Google Adwords account, or else all hell-fire would fall down on you and they'd cancel your account.
Don't fall for it.
It's a phishing scam -- maybe like the other Google Adwords account phishing scam out of China, designed to get your credit card information.
To be safe, any messages Adwords needs to get to you -- those you can pick up by just logging into your Adwords account and checking the billing section therein.
Not via some scammy email link.
