Type of a scam Tech Support

I googled "Google's" customer service number, 800-266-2549. An Indian man answered. I gave him all of my persoal info becuase I thought I was calling Google. Then he said they were doing a survey, and wanted to know how my money was going. He said I could send people money, and keep $300. So, I changed all my passwords and account info. He called back, and asked for the new passwords, but I didn't give it to him.

Type of a scam Tech Support

Called the above number to try and access my google business account. Ex partner in my business has the log in info and not responding to give me the info. So I called what I thought was Google Support and they requested I buy Google Play cards (in the amount of 600 total) to help with the account verification. After the purchase I wasn’t really given the help I needed. Terminated the call. Called me bank to cancel the $$ transactions but they couldn’t do it. When I called back to see what now happens with the Google Play cards, they said they needed 200 more in additional cards. I said that wasn’t going to happen and they said they wouldn’t be able to help with my account. Thinking this is not legit Google. So I’m reporting.

Got a call stating they were from Google and that I needed to verify and claim my business so I can keto my business out there on google. They wanted a 1 time fee of over $500.00 but then said I might be eligible for a discount. Like military, years of business, etc. etc. when I asked questions he was very rude about it and was very demanding that I pay him the money or my business would no longer be found on google. We went round and round for a while then when I said that I needed time to verify him and investigate he hung up.

Per business owner: "A number claiming to be Google calls me up to 20 times a day, stating that they will show me as closed. Other times, they say they will show incorrect information or ask for money. It is usually different people and all speak clearly. They call using different numbers. I have asked them to stop calling me, but they haven't."

They're calling saying that my Google (Business) listing is out of date and we have to update it, otherwise, people won't be able to get a hold of us. I have asked numerous times to be removed from their list and they keep calling anyway. We don't have a business and have told them as much.

Scammer calls your business phone claiming to be from Google.

Their phone number is usually spoofed but, it displayed once as 1-850-868-0323. They claim to be based in Florida.

They say your Google account has expired and needs to be re-verified.

They then ask questions related to your business (obtained from your Google web listing) and want to know if your business phone is a landline or cell.

The scammers then send a verification code to your cell phone and ask you to tell them the code number.

If you give them the code number, your phone number is then used to set up a bogus Google Voice account in their name.

Same as experience as many others have stated as complaints about them. Called saying they are directly affiliated with Google, but are NOT. I repeatedly asked them if they were directly from Google and they said they are. Represented himself has David Brown. They somehow had a Google verification code sent to me. I made the mistake of giving it to them. Once I searched the online while I was still on the phone, I confronted him about being a scam. He immediately hung up.

Business claims to be a Google 3rd party client support service that helps list SBOs on Google. They claim to help promote key word searches and demand a payment of $299 to $399 to get your ad live on Google. When you ask for a manager, ask about the company profile or ask for online payment details, they immediately hang up on you. This company called me over a dozen times trying to collect. It wasn't until I called them back asking questions that they stopped calling my line.

This robo call keeps coming through and leaves a voice message about customers won't be able to locate my business without me verifying my information about my business. A Robo call, calls states that it is calling for Google to make it easier for customers when they are doing a search for my services. This is a scam. It even comes up on my cell as likely Scam/Fraud.

Robocaller "Patrick" says "your Google listing may be in jeopardy and you need to verify the information in your listing. It will only take a moment of your time. Press 1 if you are the owner and Press 2 to be removed from their list".

It never gives an option of "I am not the owner, just an employee of the company" so the only option has ever been "2" or hang up on them. Either way, we seem to get about 10 calls per week on our various lines coming in (from various MN numbers all with the same message) whether or not we press 2 or hang up on them. It is a real pain having them call in on lines that customers are trying to get through to us for business on.

This number texted me on Saturday morning asking me to confirm my google verification code. I thought this to be a very fishy text - I phoned the number and it definitely wasn’t google, it was some strange voicemail with no recording, however you could leave a message (which I did not)

They sent me a verification code from a number ‘220-00’ and tried to get me to verify that number. I’m assuming this was the beginning of some sleezy elaborate scam these [censored] decided to pull on me. I told them very clearly where to go and that was that!

They said they were with Google and calling to update my business account information. So I was hesitant, but thinking "just don't answer private business info". They asked to clarify business name (I did not answer phone with name), so I did, then they asked if I was the owner, and said my full name. I said "Yes" and they hung up. So is this related to the scams about getting people to say Yes on the phone?

Type of a scam Phishing

I've received multiple calls from 740-524-7004. The individual says he is with Google, and he's calling to confirm my Google business listing. He wants contact info as well as account numbers, and where I bank. He wants personal credit card info as well as number of employees. He speaks perfect English. I did not give him any info. I asked to speak to a supervisor. The man said he owned all of Google and I was compelled to give him the information. This is a phishing expedition to commit fraud later. I reported this to the state highway patrol, but they were not interested in this.
