    Hi BHW, so today I wanted to log into my perfect money account so I searched "perfect money" on google. I saw an ad and clicked it and it took me to a clone site of perfect money (with wrong spellings). Could it be that some hacker is trying to harvest people's login details and possibly drain their account? Link of screenshots: http://m.imgur.com/a/wPAcE

    Looks suspicious as hell . This is a scam IMHO . That domain was registered about a month back and whois data shows registrant using an outlook email address and not a custom domain email.

    I am surprised adwords failed to track this down initially. This ad needs to be reported for safety of others.

    Yep, that's probably the case exactly.

    I have reported to both godaddy and adwords about this. Hope they act quickly.
