Some illegally-run companies are cheating unsuspecting advertising clients in Jiangsu Province by promising to help deliver ads on Google's (GOOG) search network.
Local media report that an unnamed victim had spent CNY14000 to buy seven key words from a network company who promised to put their chosen key words on the right side of Google's ad column. However, the products as well as the keywords never appeared on Google's webpage after the victim paid the money.
Staff from Google's agent in Changzhou has told the media that Google provides neither annual or monthly packages, nor ranking service to clients. The company says only those illegal companies provide these types of services in order to swindle money from users.
