Received a Robocall from Saint Marks, FL at our Church and they claimed to be Google and they wanted to "verify" our account on Google and Google maps. They went through all of the public information on our Church from Google Maps, and said for a one time fee of $199 that they could set up our "business" account so that our Church would pop up on more Google searches. One person transferred me to another person to verify and start the process for payment. He verified the information then said he would be sending out verification via email, but needed a credit card number first. Then I realized I had no way to know if it was Google or not, so I hung up.

A representative names Jason Perez called and stated that he was my "personal Google representative" and then continued to verify information located on our google page. He stated that for $5 that he could get leads generated through google for our business. He did send us a user agreement but rushed us through the process to click the link to accept the terms. No where did he verbally state that he was working for a pay per click marketing firm.

I get a lot of your business isn’t verified on google calls but I know it is so I typically don’t answer. First gentleman called from a NY area code asked for basic stuff why haven’t you answered and verified I said I did then he transferred me to Stephen at a 1800 number. This gentleman also sounded legit saying he was from google. Sent me a private verification code from a DC area code which raised second red flag. We got disconnected I began searching the numbers found complaints. He immediately called back from an Ohio area code first thing he asked was $99 one time and recurring fee to verify my google listing and get it off a hold which was untrue. He used recent updates I’ve made and public information from my google page to sound credible. He used the name Stephen at ext. 701. I called back and asked for the company name the woman stuttered and said um we do stuff for google maps etc. Stephen called back asking for the fee I laughed and said my account is not on hold it shows up from any computer and he hung up on me. Oh I also got a call from a Washington DC area at some point in all this mess also from them. Changing my passwords now just in case.

The call starts from machine telling “We have been trying to reach you numerous of time to discuss address verification at GoogleMyBusiness. Please, press 1 to speak with representative”. After pressing 1 nice lady will talk to you and discuss “key” words that needs to be added to you Google listing so you can attract more customer. She will ask questions about your business like: legal name, address, working hour, etc. Everything she can see on Google she will ask and pretend that she fill all the information. Then she helps to choose “key” words and tells about one time fee, that you can deduct from your taxes as expenses. Then you get transferred to senior marketing representative who asks you exactly the same questions as the First Lady did and then tell that only today and only for your business there is a discount and you need to pay only $175.95 to activate all the information that you provided. They also ask if COVID effected your business and all other stuff to “prove” their seriousness. After, they ask about name of the credit card you are going to use and what I did, is I said that I don’t know which card I am going to use to process this transaction. The person on the phone for frustrated and were treating me like [censored]ed. I explained, that we have different cards and names on cards that we use in our business to process or payments. He calmed down. When I told, that I cannot pay right now, because I am not the only legal owner of the business we was almost screaming at me. Then he started blaming me on “why you didn’t tell that earlier? Are you serious? Are we just wasting each other’s time?” Finally he started explaining me that I’d I will not pay right now, all the information that I provided is going to be lost and next time I would need to enter everything again. I agreed to do that next time and he hung up.

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.

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.

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.
