Fraudulent avast! Anti-Virus Products Advertised Via Google AdWords

Fraudulent selling of free avast! Home Edition anti-virus are made via several web sites, many advertised via the Google AdWords program. Scam websites are offering keys to free avast! Home Edition anti-virus and charging users as if it was for the paid version of Professional Edition. When email “invoices” are received by customers, there is no mention of avast! and instead there is a list of programs that the customer has never heard of, let alone agreed to buy.

avast! won't be the first and certainly not the last where google adwords are used in this way.

Hopefully Alwil will see this and get on to google to prevent fraud.
