Hung up as soon as answered. Nuisance number Scammer claiming to be from Google, trying to get lots of details so i can have a "free Google profile". Caller: UNKNOWN
Has called me several times over the last month or so. Always hangs up as soon as I say hello.
Apparently trying to call me to verify my business details.. havent given any info, and certainly was not going to give him more info. strong foreign accent.sounded like a call centre. But then, Google, has actually outsourced to multiple call centres for customer service so it is hard to tell. Anyone have verified from Google that it is truly a scam call??
Caller: No idea
Hung up as soon as answer. When you ring back, says 'the number you have called is unallocated'
This number has called me twice and both times has hung up as soon as I answered - when I try calling back a robo message plays stating that This number is not connected. HOWEVER, it actually IS listed as a valid number on Google's help center as one of their 'support partners' who verifies businesses (https://support.google.com/business/answer/9365862?hl=en) and I am in the process of trying to get my business on Google Maps. Didn't pick up but judging by the comments here, most likely a scammer. Similar to others had someone claiming to be from google, asking to verify my details for my business. Definite red flag.
I hung up.
Please everyone make sure you have 2 factor identification for your accounts. This seems like a phishing scam.
Hung up when i answered - i called back but it says the number is not connected!! - SCAM Said he was from Google & asked if I owned the business or was authorised to discuss on behalf of the business, He said they were wanting to assist to update business details. no sound like a professional. Told him if details needed updating I could do that myself. He wanted to do it over the phone. Also said it will take just 2 minutes to do it. But I told him that I am busy and call later. He agreed and hung up. Don't answer if I don't know number so don't know who was ringing but rung me 3/11/20, 12/11/20, 16/11/20 and today 23/11/20. Indian sounding lady claiming to be from Google - listed my companys address and asked if I was the correct person to speak to about our Google profile.. I just stopped talking until she hung up.. disconnected as soon as I answered. Hung up as soon as I picked up. Has called 3 different times and just hung up Caller: (03) 7019 8203
Claimed to be from Google. Bad phone connection plus a strong accent, couldn't understand a thing he said but he wanted me to "confirm personal data from Google". I told them to go away and hang up.
hung up as soon as i picked up Caller: Indian sounding woman
Caller said that Google needed to verify my business. I said it was verified three times. Just hung up.
The call quality was rubbish so definitely connected from a third world country to Australia.
Action: Just hang up and don't give your name etc.
Said he was from Google & asked if I owned the business or was authorised to discuss on behalf of the business, naming our sports club. He said they were wanting to assist to update business details. Indian...no sound like a call centre in the background at all. I was very wary with what I said, told him if details needed updating I could do that myself. Told him I had no internet but would cheek later. He hung up. hung up as i answered
