    AdWords prepayment
    From: *************

    This message was sent from a notification-only email address that does
    not accept incoming email. Please do not reply to this message. If you
    have any questions, please feel free to email us through the AdWords
    Help Centre at ********.


    Thank you for selecting bank transfer prepayment as your AdWords
    billing method. However, we have not yet received your bank transfer
    funding. This may be because it is still being processed by your bank
    or because you still need to initiate the transfer on your end.

    If you have not already done so, please initiate a bank transfer with
    your financial institution, making sure to generate and provide a
    reference number with your payment. You can generate this number on the
    My Account tab of your AdWords account. This number is the only way
    that we can associate your payment with your account. If you transfer
    money to us without including the reference number, your payment may be
    delayed or lost.

    Here are a few important notes to remember about bank transfers:

    - You must include the entire reference number to process a payment. If
    you do not include the entire reference number your payment will be
    delayed. If your bank transfer form does not have a field for a
    reference number, please enter the number in front of or instead of
    your name.

    - You must generate a new reference number for each payment that you make.

    - You must initiate the transfer process with the bank; Google cannot
    do this for you.

    - Google has partnered with a trusted third party to process bank
    transfers, so you may not see Google listed as the name of the bank
    account to which you are requested to send your money.

    - Your bank may charge you a processing fee in addition to the amount
    that you send to Google. Google does not reimburse advertisers for
    bank-imposed processing fees. If your bank imposes a fee or is unable
    to complete the transaction, another local bank may be able to provide
    more suitable options.

    - While 5 to 10 business days is a typical time-period for receiving a
    bank transfer, it can take up to 30 business days before Google
    receives your transfer. The timing of a given transfer depends on your
    local bank processes. Even banks within the same country may have
    different procedures for initiating a bank transfer payment.

    For help with paying by bank transfer, please see our step-by-step
    instructions at ********
    We look forward to providing you with the most effective advertising available.

              Yep loads of them going around..

              For all account online ignore ALL emails and login directly..

              Paypal,google,ebay etc.. It will display ANY info you need to add update or change on the homepage of your account..

              Best way to stop this is to use another email account for things like google.. One that doesn't relate to your site ...

              I have about 30-40 email account and get **** email all day every day but very few on my email account conectted to paypal or google etc..

              Hope that helps..
