Menlo Park scam alert: Crooks posing as Google employees
Reports the Menlo Park Police Department:
“There is a new scam going around and it has to do with Google Adsense Accounts. Crooks posing as Google employees are calling people at random stating that they have a certain amount of money in their AdSense account with Google and if they are interested in receiving their money, they have to pay a designated amount of money up front. This is fraud and it is being actively investigated.
If you receive a phone call, please report the scam to Google.
