Google Adwords Phishing

Someone is now targeting Google Adwords users in an attempt to gain access to their accounts. I Received the following email today:

Dear Google AdWords Customer,

We were unable to process your payment.
Your ads will be suspended soon unless we can process your payment.
To prevent your ads from being suspended, please update your payment information.

and update your payment information.

This message was sent from a notification-only email address that does
not accept incoming email. Please do not reply to this message.
