When I search for aforementioned Julissa Brisman < ... I don't get ANY sponsored links, nor sidebar suggestions for any other Brisman, either person, nor company. Nothing else in fact. Most certainly because I'm in a different locality, far from American shores where this happened, and where the AdWords were purchased for (not in Europe, my location undisclosed on purpose). I had to send myself mail with tthat name in the subject to elicit any ads from Gmail.

Strangely enough, they were from several countries, in different languages, and without any visible common denominator among them. For the record here they are (with slight semantic/ spelling changes in order not to affect their subsequent rankings; also no such domains):
