Hello,
I got today an email from google which says Suspicious activity detected (Someone might have accessed your Google Account using a suspicious app installed on one of your devices)
I immediately changed my password and reactivate the 2Fac app + signed out from all my devices
however, I received another email later on (Your Google Ads account xxx-xxx-xxxx has been suspended because your account has an unpaid balance) I signed in to see what's happening because I don't use google ads at all, and I saw two active ads for some bitcoin scam and I didn't use google ads or made this ad also I noticed a new checking account located in the United States has been added as a payment method and payment user also !!
what should I do can please someone help?

Hi
  1. Secure a hacked or compromised Google Account following these steps: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6294825?hl=en
  2. Immediately report charges you don't recognize:
    For unauthorized Google Ads charges check this article: https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/2472641?hl=en
  3. Also check your Google Play account: https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/2851610
Here you can check your password was leaked:  https://www.avast.com/hackcheck
 
I recommend to read all the steps first, and being very careful as you could lock out from your account mistakenly.
A recommend to perform similar steps in all your platform You use (like facebook etc.)
 
Also check (ask professional service) your computer, tablet and mobile for malware and unwanted software.
 
Never provide your password in websites your reached via clicking a link in an email (or chat).
Never use your password on multiple sites.
 
Regards,
István
