To stop various fraudulent "Google Money" schemes, Google have filed a suit against Pacific WebWorks and several other unnamed defendants. “Google hasn't created or endorsed any of sites like those described in our complaint. Misleading ads try to take advantage of consumers in midst of difficult economy, and as economic situation has worsened, problem has only grown. As far as we can tell, thousands of people have been tricked into sending payment information and being charged hidden fees by questionable operations.” “Even as we're taking legal action to try to cut these sites off at source, we're still working constantly to remove scammy URLs from our index, and we'll permanently disable AdWords accounts that provide a poor or harmful user experience, whether or not they use Google's trademarks illegally. That said, we can't guarantee that schemes like these won't pop up, like the proverbial "Whack-A-Mole", someplace else online — either on a different network or under a different name,” Google blog.
