    Doesn't sound like Google to me. More like a sort of physhing scam. Only one thing Google would ask is your ten-digit account ID. They may also ask the email you used to create the account and that's it. Don't give your password under any circumstance. If they ask, they're not Google. Only you and people you authorize to manage your account should have that info.

    Doesn't sound like any kind of Google promotion I've ever heard of. If it were me, I wouldn't disclose any personal information.

    I've used Adwords for a couple of years now and have never had Google try to call me. I've received stuff in the postal mail from them, but never a call.

    Google in general doesn't do anything by phone, so this sounds highly suspect.
