I received the following through my email account. It seems to be a scam since I don't have now or never have had such an account. It is obvious that by entering the link provided they will ask for sensitive information.


Google AdWords News BulletinDear advertiser!We are once again monitoring quarterly account activation and deleting the accounts of users who have been inactive for more than four months and have no funds in their accounts.This measure is due to the fact that there have recently been more frequent cases of Google AdWords accounts being hacked and funds added from stolen credit cards.We hereby notify you that your account has been inactive for more than four months and is liable to be deleted according to our activation programme. In order to activate your account, you just have to log in using your registration data. Please click on the link below: [link removed]. By clicking on the link you will proceed directly to the registration data entry page.
