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: 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.
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. Thanks to these warnings, I'm not picking up. They are consistently ringing and not leaving voice messages... 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.
fake company from Google Adwords if you use the service. at least they leave a voice message. I sent the caller to voicemail. The message contained only background noise before hanging up. Looks like a scam Verify calls from “Google.” Google does call business owners to verify listings, but they usually just ask a few questions—they won’t try to sell you anything or ask for payment. If someone calls you saying they are from Google (according to Google, scammers often use language like “Google specialist” or “calling about Google” or “calling on behalf of Google”), ask them to send you an email to verify their identity. Anyone employed by Google will be able to send you an email from an @google.com email account. Caller: John
Has called about 5 times in 24 hrs leaving messages saying he’s John from google my business ( has named my business he wants to discuss) I’ve blocked his number but unfortunately he’s still able to leave voicemails
Caller: Could be a scam
Very dodgy.... They're requesting to access an AdWords accounts with an MCC (which is an agency/client centre account) and they're saying that they will only have read access (but the request came through asking for full access).
When dealing with Google in the past, they have been able to access accounts without adding their MCC account. I suspect this is a scam.
Caller: (03) 8593 9131
Have been receiving calls from this number and similar, telemarketing of some kind, intermittent and sketchy, selling something!
I have had 3 missed calls from this number today, the person calling doesn't leave a message but stays on the phone without saying a word while the voicemail is recording. After seeing the posts on this site, I've blocked the number. Claimed to be from Google. I asked where he was located and he said Philippines.
So I asked why he's using an Australian number from Philippines and he just ignored that and asked about my business listing. He said he was here to help and give me performance advice, add new photos etc. I asked what can he tell me that I cannot find out myself? Nothing. I asked "what do you want?" He finally said about advertisitng......blocked.
Caller: John Paul
Day after setting up an adwords account got a call from this number - asked him to confirm via email his identity, and it checks out - email headers confirm actually from Google. Interesting that the Google Dialer picked the number up as spam as well though, must have been flagged a lot.
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.
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
I received a missed call googled the nunber put me on this site so i blocked the number problem solved Caller: She said she was from google
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.
I would not trust this people at all
Caller: Claimed to be from Google
