I get a lot of them when I run ad words. They know you are trying to get work and you are paying google so they prey on these ads and call you.

It sucks because it's a waste of clicks and money. Even if you geo target your ads, i'm affraid they are masking their ip locations in order to still see them and capture your number.
Actually, in order to become a legitimate Google Partner, your have to actively manage a set ad spend , and pass a series of tests. I'd be more leery of those who aren't verified Google Partners.

And that is something totally different than SEO. It is CPC or CPM advertising.
