Thanks in advance.
Gmail ad from competitor: Get XYZ widgets here!
My clients name is very popular and considered a major brand on an international scope.
A for instance, IF my client was H/B/O, and there is a next company that sales cable broadcasting. The next company ad is reading, "Do you want H/B/O?" in gmail contextual advertising. The problem is that they don't have any H/B/O packages, just packages similiar to H/B/O.
They are advertising thru contextual gmail ads.
I know this sort of this is wrong, I just needed to know the exact avenue I should take have their ad removed for gmail advertising.
I've just been dealing with a similar issue. Maybe somebody knows better, but what I did was sign into my adwords account and you can follow a 'contact us' link from there to write in your question.
I just did this today and am awaiting a response.

It horrifies me to think personal replys to emails may contain a competitors advert.
To me it is outrageous that google will show a competitor site in my response to an email enquirey so I will just ask all gmail and googlemail enquires to give me a proper email address in future.
We got the enquirey and google has absolutely no right to display and advert against the enquirey we worked so hard for. Don't be evil? for #*$! sake you google are acting currently so evil you make Bill Gates look like the frigging pope.

Google has the absolute right to display ads, including your competitors, to it's customers using their FREE e-mail service.
If you don't like it then don't answer e-mails to inquiries from any of the free e-mail services.
