Type of a scam Identity Theft

Type of a scam Phishing

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?

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.

I answered the phone and a voice said, "Ple[censored]d to verify your business Google listing." I held, and when the person got on the phone, he said, is this the business owner. I said "yes" and immediately realized I did the wrong thing. He hung up immediately. I called the number back, and it was not a working number.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I had a problem in accessing my Gmail account. So i went to the web site to get the phone number for Google. The number that came up was 1-855-769-8444. I phoned this number and talked to a person name Manish. and he connived me that they are safe since they are representing Google. Then they wanted to access my computer which they did and shut my computer down. They said their technician will get in touch with me and will cost me $150.00. I put the phone down and did not entertain the call from their technician. Now i have to spend money to debug my computer. Please note this is not the only time i have been exposed to this type of scam and we should do our best to ensure that this is not repeated..

Type of a scam Government Grant

They called and said that they were with Google and that I had won money and that I needed to send them $350 for the delivery fee. After the phone call, they began texting me the information to send the money to. The information said that the address to send the money to is in the United Arab Emirate, Zipcode 971 and his name is Tobi Ayodeji. They also used the names Ben Morgan (FedEx deliveryman) & Tina Whitman (receiver of the delivery fee). They said they were from Franklin, PA. Then they stated they were in LA. They stated that the FBI and INTERPOL is aware of this program and that I "should not be afraid" of the situation because it is "legitimate." He also stated that one day the board of Facebook and "Mr. Mark" knew about the program. They told me not to tell anyone. He initially said that I won $550,000, then it went up to $1M. They wanted me to send the money either via Fed-Ex, Western Union Store or Walmart MoneyGram. They sent me photos of Mark Zuckerberg in a conference room with members of the military "securing my and other people's winnings." They sent me a photo of "my winnings" as well as photos of a Fed-Ex truck, and a Bank of America check "from Facebook" with my name on it and a list of "Facebook world lottery 2018 winnings," a winnings certificate for $500,000. They asked me for my bank information. They photoshopped my name on a bunch of false documents. They have my name and address. This is a very thorough scam!

The phone call came in this morning 7/12/18 about 11:15 a.m. Arizona Time. The Rep. claimed to be with Google and they said they would text me a verification code and that is why I gave them my first and last name with my cell phone number.That is all the info I gave them and did not give them any financial or social security info at all. Now all they can do is try to scam me by calling my cell phone. I never received any verification code via text like they claimed they would send me. The Rep gave me their personal cell number 216-531-1439 The name of the Rep claiming to be with Google was Nicole Cage. I think it is a bogus name and it sounded like a foreign boiler room call center.The Rep. claimed to be with Google and said our listing was about to expire and needed to be updated. Upon reporting this to my supervisor, he said we are updated with Google and he too has received fake emails regarding Google listing.When I called them back it sounded very shady and they did not answer in a professional manner or identify themselves as being with Google. I feel that this is an info fishing scam.

Google call our business about 5-10 times a day. They use multiple phone numbers and there is never a real person. They even used one of our own business location phone numbers *** ***, we answered it thinking it was one of our workers and it was Google. I've gone on the google website to report but it seems this has been happening alot and it is not really google but a robocall.

If you need any other info, please contact *** ** *** * *** *** *** ***

My bank called me to inform me that I had several charges from a google app. I looked up what I thought was google phone number and called it. I spoke with Andy Johnson. He proceeded to tell me that he would refund my money and needed access to a secure sytem to to the refund. He used a remote access software on my computer and used bitcoin to transfer $725 and $400 and another $700 scheduled to be debited from my account. He called the next day and wanted to get access again to give me the 'approved' amount back.

Called a phone number, provided by Indeed.com, to speak with a Google Representative so I can reset my email password. A manager by the name of Mr. Lee Parker (Which i'm certain is not his correct name) informed me that the only way to reset my password was to purchase an iTunes card and read him the card number. He also stated that I would get the money back.

Believing that this was a scam, I declined his request and read on the Google website that there is no verbal way to reset the password over the phone, it has to be reset internally with Google Tech Support team.

This phone number is obviously a scamming company and needs to be shut down asap!

An email from Google said I had broken messages. Click view messages.

It then takes me to a web site. It says my I-pad is locked due to illegal activity Pegasus spyware activated. Immediately call 1800-692-5499 for apple care head offices. I called the number and they made it sound like they were legit. Wanted to get onto my computer to show me the foreign address that were there and IP addresses that were illegal. Then download to fix the problem. Also wanted me to pay by PayPal. Which I did. He gave me his name Michael S***. He helped me change passwords. Oh my as I type this I see so many flags! I was so upset because at the beginning he said my computer was compromised. I also gave name and address and phone number. I'm so sick I could puke! They had levels of protection. 1 year $200, 2 year $300, 3 year $400 or lifetime $600. He tried to commit me to more...I didn't. When the PayPal came thru in my email. It was $100 at a time. So it was two transactions. It said $100.00 to I-tunes App Store. That's when I became suspicious. I called the number back again. I talked to his replacement. Joy, which now I think it was him. Oh please help!

This number called my small business claiming to be Google and wanted all my business information in order to update my info that google gives out. Then they asked for a one time fee (around $400) so that when people search online my business name would pop up before others. I have never attempted to call Google and from what I know, Google will never call you out of the blue.

Business owner received a call and automated message said "You have violated google places account". An individual then came on the line to reiterate the violation. The victim did not stay on the line long enough to find out what she had to do to remedy the matter, and contacted Google. Google informed her that they do not make calls to business owners.
