Fake Google Adwords Site

This morning I discovered several emails in our marketing inbox appearing to be from Google informing us that our Google Adwords payment information could not be processed and that we needed to login to update the information. However, even though the email looks authenticate, when you click the link you are actually re-directed to a fake Google Adwords site.

When I type in a fake Google login (obviously I would not provide mine) I am directed to a very authenticate looking form that is now asking me to submit payment information.

After submitting your payment information you are informed that your ads have been re-activated and then you are directed back to the real Google Adwords site (by the way it looks exactly the same). In conclusion Targeted phishing scams are becoming popular and in this case it was directed at our marketing inbox.
