Google suing "Google Money" scammers

December 9, 2009 · Posted in Commentary 

Google posted an entry in its blog that it had filed suit this week against Pacific WebWorks and several other unnamed defendants.   Google has an issue with its name and logo being used in advertisements such as “Use Google to make 1000s of Dollars!” and “Easy Cash with Google: You could be Making up to $978 a Day Working from home!”  Google states that it hasn’t created or endorsed any of the sites like those described in their complaint.  In its blog, Google said,thousands of people have been tricked into sending payment information and being charged hidden fees by questionable operations.”

Google cautions to be wary of names like Google Adwork, Google ATM, Google Biz Kit, Google Cash, Earn Google Cash Kit, Google Fortune, Google Marketing Kit, Google Profits, The Home Business Kit for Google, Google StartUp Kit, and Google Works.  Google also warned to be skeptical and review any offers online before sending any information, and always be on guard when presented with an offer that seems too good to be true.
