CNNMoney reports Google filed a lawsuit against Pacific WebWorks and other unnamed defendants for allegedly using the company’s name and colorful logo to promote fraudulent work-at-home money-making schemes.
Thousands of people have been tricked into sending payment information and being charged hidden fees by questionable operations,” Google said in a blog post.
The search engine giant sued Salt Lake City-based Pacific WebWorks, an application service provider and software development firm, in a court in Utah.
Pacific WebWorks did not respond to phone calls and e-mails requesting comment.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based Google provided other names users should be wary of: Google Adwork, Google ATM, Google Biz Kit, Google Cash, Earn Google Cash Kit, Google Fortune, Google Marketing Kit, Google Profits, The Home Business Kit for Google, Google StartUp Kit, and Google Works.
