Microsoft has taken down a couple of fake Google Chrome ads from Bing after getting reports from users. The fake ads were first spotted by a user who was trying to download Google Chrome.
The user who goes by the username “GabrielLandau” reported the fake ads to Bing on Twitter. Upon getting the report, Microsoft was quick enough to remove those ads from Bing. The Bing Ads team confirmed that they have removed the ads and banned the account associated with the fake ads. The Bing Ads team also urged users to continue reporting fake or low-quality ads to the team so an appropriate action can be taken.
Hi Gabriel, protecting customers from malicious content is a top priority and we have removed the ads from Bing and banned the associated account. We encourage users to continue to report this type of content at https://t.co/Dh1KuF5O0t so we can take appropriate action. ^GC

This is not the first time as companies like Microsoft and Google do see and remove low-quality or fake ads daily. The good news is that companies usually take action before users could see bad advertisements. However, if an ad is missed, users can always report it to the company.
