I was looking on google and noticed a url in adwords which had the name of my website as a .com rather than the .co.uk that i run. I clicked on the link and it went to a geocities hosted page and it was a total rippoff of my site - EXACTLY THE SAME. it has a shopping cart as well that can collect peoples credit card details but there is no contact information. I think the people who have set it up are fraudsters and will be using peoples card details. I am really worried about this ad have e-mailed adwords and geocities as well as the shopping cart provider but who knows how long they will take to respond. I have a really good google position and i am concerned that this may effect it - should i contact google?. If anyone has any advice on what i can do it will be very gratefully recieved.
the problem with my situation is that the site in question is hosted on geocities and i do not know of any way to find their contact information as they have nothing like that on the copied version of my site. I have contacted geocities but no response yet - i could be waiting forever unless anyone knows of a relevant direct dial phone number or e-mail address
