Google says Utah company behind online scam


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Google Inc. says a Utah company is using its name to defraud consumers.

The Internet leader filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Pacific WebWorks Inc., a Salt Lake City company that claims it pays people thousands of dollars a month simply to post links for certain Web sites.

The Utah Better Business Bureau say it’s just another work-at-home scam that lets the company charge people’s bank accounts for useless moneymaking kits.

Utah incorporation records list a Christian Lars as president of Pacific WebWorks Inc. in the warehouse district of Salt Lake City.

A man who answered Pacific WebWorks’ phone refused to answer questions Tuesday from The Associated Press.
