    ok, i seen a website offering $300 Adwords Voucher in the google search.
    I am shocked!! Wow.. I went to their website, started to fill name, email etc.

    They have asked for adwords email there.. no problem, filled..
    next is, adwords password!!! wtf man..?
    Why they need password? Its a scam I think...
    Please dont fall on this if you seen this offer anywhere....

    There are $300 vouchers, and I have had a few months ago. But this one is just to rob off your accounts :D

    the outcome was;
    i seen their advertisement in google search (adwords).
    went to their site and used a gmail address with fake password.

    few minutes later, when i tried to go their website, firefox reported that web forgery..
    tried to login to my gmail and google saying suspicious activity on your email, and asking to verify via phone..

    the gmail address was got from bhw few days ago.. one member was given some 1000 free gmail addresses here..

    because it is a throw away gmail, i did not bothered to verify it..

    we bhw people usually did not fall for these types of scams..
    but i am sure there will be many outside people got their accounts hacked by them..

    Amazing how people can fall for this. Reminds me of Harro creating a thread that was 20+ pages that said if you type up, down, up, down, left, right, left right etc... you would get Jr VIP access.... 20+ pages... *sigh*

    If I were stupid and wanted to do something like this, I would i-frame an email submit CPA offer and tell them I would send the $300 voucher to their email. Instead asking for the password, etc., just have them enter their email and collect a couple of bucks each time.
