LOS ANGELES, CA – April 29, 2015 – (411 PRESS RELEASES) — Seasoned digital marketer, Yan S.

He investigated the issue and noticed that hackers have hi-jacked the Google search results for this search term. He has provided insight that this was done through a loophole in Google’s advertising platform, Google Adwords. Google does not require advertisers to have the display URL, which is what the audience sees, to be the same as actual URL of the page that they click into.

Yan Huang has released this statement on his online marketing blog, “The hackers have swindled at least a hundred thousand dollars of which that have been confirmed from multiple undisclosed but reliable direct sources of mine.”

He explains in-depth on how the Bing Ads Phishing Scam is done. He also shares tips on how to protect yourself from becoming a victim of online phishing scams.
