    Caller: 'Geraldine' from 'Adwords' (not)

    Love to know how you 'confirmed' this is genuine. I know for a fact is isn't. It's linked to scam aimed squarely at defrauding you.

    Caller: Josh from Google or Global, depending on voice to text interpretation.

    Keeps leaving a message to call him back. I haven't so far, and after reading the above, I won't. Even if it is genuine, it is obviously a means to extract money from me.

    Caller: Google

    This is actually Google calling about your MyBusiness listing. Neither are they trying to sell you stuff, but it appears to be a genuine call from Google, trying to interact with MyBusiness registered users. Funny that :D

    Thanks to these warnings, I'm not picking up. They are consistently ringing and not leaving voice messages...

    This is a scam, and I fell for it! They called and confirmed my name (they already knew it which is why I fell for it). A couple of days later and I have fraudulent transactions on my credit card from a company with a domain similar to Google.cc. Please don't give these people any details or confirm any details they already have.

    Caller: Google Adwords

    I can confirm this is genuinely google adwords.
    The extension belongs to Geraldine (Account Manager).
    Once you activate an adwords account they try to assign you a case manager who will make suggestions on your campaign.
    (Generally speaking, they want you to invest more in advertisement - it's a sales call disguised as a help session)
    I tried to survive the call but the entire process is too scripted for me to waste an hour on my business phone.
    She is persistent and has called about 5 times in the last 30 mins, I terminated the process last week.

    Caller: Claimed to be Google Adwords

    I did set up a Google AdWords account recently, but this call seemed very dodgy! They said they weren’t trying to sell me anything, but only wanted to “help me” create the best advertising campaign. Asked me many questions, and asked me to state my name (which I refused to do, telling them they already have it on the account) so I suspect this is harvesting voices to use for voice-activated confirmations.

    Geraldine has called me several times about google adwords.
    I havent got a google account and the company is for Naked body ltd or something, I dont even own a company.
    She always asked for the same person which isnt me and I tell her to take her number off the account but she refuses to do it as she keep phoning.

    Caller: Google Adwords

    Had 2 missed calls from there. I got the impression it actually is Google Adwords. They called me after I set up second adwords account. I used this service before and they are very pushy sales people disguised as technical support and offer "free strategic advice" which is usually to spend more on advertising. There is some useful information they provide but just bear in mind you'll be pressured to spend more.

    It’s fake, they claim to be from Google AdWords. My company already uses Google AdWords, however they’re suggesting that they prefer we use their own service instead of the Google AdWords we’re using. At the end, they sent me an email and even that didn’t look real (esp. the email address) so I reported it.

    "Deon" from Google Adwords. Wanting to speak with the business owner about our Adwords account. Gave me an 1800 number with an extension for the business owner to contact him. Had a thick Indian accent, not sure if actually from google Adwords, not sure why they would be contacting us.

    I received a call from a woman purporting to be from Google, saying she had received my email about AdWords. I assured her I had not signed up for AdWords. She gave me the email address and it wsa a gmail address I've never heard of. As soon as I insisted this was not me she said "ok that's sorted then" and hung up. I'm suspecting a scam as a quick interwebz search seems to indicate that there are fraudsters out there who buy keywords for sites they are mimicking. No idea why. I'm not doing anything about it at this stage as pretty sure it's just a phishing expedition, but I'd be wary of anything coming from this number.
