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". 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. Robocaller every 8 to seconds several times a day for several days in each of the past 3 months. I have a sophisticated caller ID system that catches out scam callers and robocalls. This number is listed as registered to a defunct company NZ 3 PTY LIMITED with an American accent voice recording stating "the number you have dialed is unallocated". This is a clear and obvious scammer. Caller: "Google?"
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'
Caller: Scam call keep ringing
This number is very annoying and been rung for few times already. We are unable to stop them calling but have to pick up and hang up to stop ringing.
Nuisance call. A real tosser. Scam. Hangs up immediately. Just block the number. It is the easiest way Caller: An Indian man
He said he is from google and asked if he could speak with the business owner or authorised person for the business. I said I am. I had just listed my business name and location on google last week Thursday. The Indian man on the phone asked me to confirm that my business address is still what it is on google. I said yes. He then said that my business posting has not been verified. I said yes but waiting for the postcard code to verify the account. He then said he can send me a link to verify it over the phone. I said no, I will wait for the post card and verify online myself. He then insisted that it will only take a couple of minutes with the link and that he is from Google and that the number he is calling with is registered on google support. He also mentioned that should I try to call the number afterwards, it will not connect as he can only call me. I said no, thanks and cut the call.
A friend of mine got scammed by an Indian lady and man over the phone last week Tuesday claiming that they are from ebay. They claimed she had made a purchase on ebay but has not paid. My friend said she did not and then they said that someone must have created a fake account in her name and that they can help her cancel the account and put a future alert for such case but that she needs to download an app. When she did, the person on the phone began opening all her apps on her phone and then created a zippay app and account on her phone. They also asked my friend to complete a form via the app the Indian man on the phone had asked her to downloaded onto her phone and was asked to put in her card details which she did. They then took some money out of her bank account via ZipPay. When my friend saw what was happening, she thought her phone was playing up but when i saw what was happening, I told her to cut the call immediately. Please, beware of these scammers that claim they are from these big Companies. If they call you and ask you to do things, cut the call and call those Companies’ numbers directly.
saying he is from google checking my address and wants to speak to business owner. Caller: Google
SCAMMER !! DO NOT PROCEED AT ALL WITH THIS CALL
Hung up straight after answering the call. Within 10 minutes an automated call came from "Paypal". $100 has been successfully paid to/from? your account, press 1 to confirm or 2 to cancel. I hung up on them. I didn't answer and there was no message left. Based on other people's input, it seems like this is a scam call. Indian man, claimed to be checking my business address to update Google map reference.
I said you could have “Googled” that and confirmed it in a dozen different publicly listed places.
I’m from google,wanting to check your verification. Caller: UNKNOWN
Has called me several times over the last month or so. Always hangs up as soon as I say hello.
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
