An e-mail I received this morning was a phishing attempt from someone trying to represent themselves as AdWords support. Be careful when reading potential e-mails this morning.

Dear Google AdWords Customer!

In order to update your billing information, please sign in
to your AdWords account at [ADWORDS URL displayed masked by different .CN destination URL], and update your
billing information. Your account will be reactivated as soon as you have
entered your payment details. Your ads will show immediately if you
decide to pay for clicks via credit or debit card. If you decide to pay
by direct debit, we may need to receive your signed debit authorization
before your ads start running, depending on your location. If you
choose bank transfer, your ads will show as soon as we receive your
first payment. (Payment options vary by location.)

Thank you for choosing AdWords. We look forward to providing you with
the most effective advertising available.


The Google AdWords Team
