Just a word of warning for Google Adword users. There’s a new email going around trying to catch you out.

The mail will look something like this

Before going to any site from an email link hover over the link to see where it’s directing you, because even though the landing page will look “real” the actual site may be a hoax (like this one is), and looking to get your username and password.
