    Google sent me a letter ask for a call,

    has anyone else had these letters and can I assume they just want more money off me?

    This honestly sounds very suspicious. I'd bet it is a scam, but if you can you should probably show us the scanned letter.

    One more thing I'd do is to search the phone number they gave you using Google and see if it returns any results; if it does not, it is almost certainly a scam. There is also a chance that in this way you could find other people reporting the same thing.

    Google adwords always use email in correspondency since sending letter will add operational cost and not efficient since google adwords user spreaded across the world.

    It does sound very suspicious and specific. I don't think the Google Adwords team will have the time to scan each account and write them a very specific letter. That is just too much to do. Normally, letters are generic.

    Are the figures that they have mentioned correct?

    This letter has tons of personal details, like account number, number of clicks and CPC. Just look up in your account if this are the corrects statistics.

    If you have spent 1136 pounds per month on your advertising campaign, I don't see why Google representative can't contact you and give you some tips on how to optimize your campaigns as this might just be their jobs.

    Seems totally legit ;) Good luck with your campaigns.

    Very suspicious. G always uses email. Did it come from a poor person whose mum left her 60 billion dollars and wants to share with you? LOL!
    Ring Google. Definitely.

    I don't think they send letters like that, First priority is email, did you receive any kind of email?
