USA: Google sues over alleged work-at-home scams

Google is suing Pacific WebWorks over the creation of scam ads ("Use Google to Make 1000s of Dollars!" or "Easy Cash with Google: You Could be Making up to $978 a Day Working from Home!") that have fooled thousands of job hunters into thinking they were applying for work with the internet giant. Because the logo is displayed prominently on the ads, Google claims the unaffiliated websites are misusing its trademark to deceive unsuspecting consumers, many of whom have turned to Google to lodge complaints and ask for refunds. According to Google,  consumers who sign up for these products either receive nothing except fraudulent credit card charges, or DVDs with computer viruses.
