And in legal parlance, ignorance to no excuse. But in all fairness to Google, you cannot tell me that facebook and similar companies are not doing the same thing. I have looked at a lot of their ads and many are dripping with the word fraud. However, in some cases, the schemes are so creative and deceptive, one has to really dig to find out it is a scam (though there is one on fb that is blatantly obvious I do not understand how fb does not see it). Couple that with greed and people's gullibility, and that is why they succeed.
