Finally, Google Suspends Accounts Running Adword Scam Programs

Google has started suspending Adwords accounts selling Adwords get rich scams, the Google Help forum reported. Thanks to Barry Schwartz for pointing it out.

Aaron Wall had called them out on this a few weeks ago. The Google Money scams had been running in Adwords during various searches, baiting people with the ability to make cash arbitraging search and reselling basic information that can be found online for free but does not guarantee any success – well maybe that is not what the ads suggest.

The reply from Google reads:
“It’s come to our attention that you have submitted ads that promote Google Money Tree or ads that promote a misrepresented affiliation with Google. Due to multiple complaints from our users and publishers, we’ve made the decision not to accept these ads.

This is a notification that your account has been suspended due to the submission of these ads and your ads will no longer run on Google. Please note that future accounts you open will also be suspended.”
