I came across a few articles that talk about the current glut of google scams on the internet and in my inbox :x
Here is a brief summary
* Google says it hasn't endorsed any of the bougus sites that use lines like "Use Google to Make 1000s of Dollars!" or "Easy Cash with Google: You Could be Making up to $$$$ a Day Working from Home!"
"Google seeks to stop a widespread Internet advertising scam that is defrauding the public by misusing the famous Google brand."
* Google says that many companies do legitimately make money placing ads on websites with Google AdSense.
* "Thousands of people have been tricked into sending payment information and being charged hidden fees by questionable operations," Google said in a blog post recently
* "The scam victimizes unsuspecting consumers by prominently displaying the famous Google mark, by suggesting sponsorship by Google Inc., and by urging consumers to obtain a kit supposedly showing them how to make money working from home with Google."
* Along with several unnamed companies, the search engine giant sued software development firm Pacific Web Works in a Utah District Court.
