fake company 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.
They called and hung up Tried telling me they were from Google, they aren't... also wanted to speak about the adwords account I apparently using 2 years ago... for a business I registered last month! 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 today from this number and that guy already know my name, my business name and my signup date for Google Adwards
I said I am not interested in this service now and then hang up.
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. They didn't bother leaving a message, only found out who called when I rang back. from Google Adwords if you use the service. at least they leave a voice message. I was half way through making a Google Adwords account a few days ago before deciding to not make one. They wanted to know if I was still making my account.
Still unsure whether it is spam or not.
