Google Adwords banned data recovery services

Same here in Germany now (started a few weeks ago) but some "big" companies are left in top position with ads. I hope google will clean this up (also some known scam ads are shown). But atm I am also happy with this change as these ads where a pip-off for smaller shops.

Help. Platter full of fingerprints, is there hope?

The Reason Why People Hate Data Recovery Labs
