After investigation I believe the number is legitimately associated with Google one way or another. The problem is that they are basically commission based telemarketers with an end goal of getting you to increase your ad-words spend. They are dishonest in the manner in which they attempt to get you on onboard, giving the impression that they are Google Ad-Words support, calling to assist you out of the goodness of their hearts, to help you get the best out of your adwords account ... without spending an extra cent. I call bullsh*t.
They are in fact from Google. I don't waste my time with them though because none of them speak clear English and it's virtually impossible to understand them. Caller: ITS NOT GOOGLE
I'm an AdWords manager for several companies. The number is linked to Google Adwords support as an inbound number, however they don't make calls from this number. Google has no record of the calls made is association with my clients accounts. Someone, somehow, is using the number as the call ID. It's NOT Google.
I have confirmed with Google that this number is in fact AdWords support team :) Caller: Google
We blocked the Google number. Guess what? They now call with a blocked number (anonymous). Typical M.O of incessant spammers. They know we are not interested - yet they keep calling and trying to get people on the phone. Pathetic, disgraceful conduct for a company of Googles ilk. It's about time Google actually respected the wishes of their advertisers or the ACCC (or other relevant government body) started cracking down on them.
I've got google adwords already but these guys keep trying to sell me more and more things. I spend over $1000 + a month already. Still not enough for google. Want to milk every marketing cent from their customers.
They said they are from google, called to help with your adwords campagin. Google adwords spam Yes, these callers are giving you a few tips and how to improve your campaigns BUT... their main goal is to get yo to spend more $$$ and they are constantly calling other businesses doing the same which is just a constant cycle of everyone increasing spend to get in front of each other.... the only one that benefits is Google. They are a pain blocked caller now Caller: Piss off google
This is getting really frustrating. 2 phone calls every single day morning and afternoon. I took their call initially but just stopped taking it after they won't give up calling. What can I do to bar them of my phone. Google is getting really annoying now
Google Adwords support
they never stop! they will ring multiple times in a row and nearly everyday. I manage a few Adwords accounts and it gets really annoying
Worst business practice ever. Thinking of cancelling all my Google advertising as sick of them calling trying to get me to spend more money. I've asked to be never called but they never listen.
Caller: Some indian fellow
my gut says the same thing. They are NOT calling because im a nice guy and they want to help me out. I get so many calls per day I have become very cynical.
Very disgusting business practice.
Called hysterically on daily basis even if I have blocked them for many months. Fuk you Google! You are inflicting your customer, fuk you Google!!!
Caller: Wilford (with Indian accent)
Exactly as everyone has advised, telemarketer claiming to call from Google. He had access to a director's phone number that are not listed in our Google Adwords accounts and wasn't able to explain how the number ended up in their database. He instructively asked me to login and go into our campaigns set up to start making changes to them. The method suggest these are scammers who attempts in manipulating decision without proper decision process. Disgraceful practice of sales / marketing. I do hope Google does something about protecting their customers from these practices.
Caller: Not Google
The number being used belongs to Google but the call is not from Google Ads team. They are using a software to show that number on the Caller ID.
Caller: Google call center spammers
More AdWords call center spam calls. They never give up. Despite the account saying "do not market to me" - they still call every month without fail. They have now started trying different extensions in our office in the hope of getting hold of someone as reception refuses to put them through to "the head of marketing".
Unathourised calls to registeed do not call number
Caller: google adwords but they arent
some mob pretending to be support for google adwords. keep leaving creepy breathing voicemails. do not give your details when you return call!!
not assosiated with GOOGLE
This number has called multiple times over teh past couple of months. Alaways rings once or twice and hangsup, obviously wanting me to call back. Pest. Ignore this number.
