Beware: Google AdWords Phishing Attempts Continue

Beware: Google AdWords Phishing Attempts Continue

Emails disguised as official Google AdWords emails are being sent to advertisers asking them to update their billing information. When an advertiser goes through the link and updated their billing information, their credit card information is being sent to hackers across the globe. I have a copy of the email at the Search Engine Roundtable, where I first reported this back in March.
If you look at the link, embedded in those phishing emails, it might appear that you are taken to Google.com, but in reality, you are taken to a URL that looks something like this: http://adwords.google.com.fr4ck.cn/select/Login.
