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.
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
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... 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. Caller: Google Ads
I setup a Google MyBusiness listing recently. I received two calls from this number, once on 14th November and now once on 2nd January. This is Google Adwords campaigns calling and is legitimate. They will always send an email from an email @google.com following up their attempt to contact.
If you don't have a need for their services, tell them you're not seeking their services currently and to not call the number. They will agree to those terms.
Caller: Maria Cristina Simon
Rang three times, finally left voicemail. Was Asian/Filipino lady claiming to be from Google. They also sent me an email. I blocked and reported spam. I’m not interested in advertising.
This is so weird, how do they know I just set up a Google ad? To many coincidences, that they follow genuine Google interactions. Caller: Asian Laddy
Told me she was representing Google ads and trying to get me to advertise my business with Google ads. After she explained rates and how it works I asked if she could email me this information so I could look over it she said yes she would. That was at 4.36pm today 15/10/2019 I still haven't received that email. Total scam and I've now blocked the number.
Caller: Google Adwords
Left 2 messages about my recent Google ad listing - I don't do Google Ads
Thank you to the other comments I will not be returning their call
(03) 8593 9131
They called me over the last two days. Thank you for all your helpful comments. Saved me a lot of drama as they sound believable. I googled the number (03) 8593 9131 and saw they were reported as scammers.
Duly blocked number.
Checkmate! (hopefully )
Caller: Some bloke then got transfered to a lady named Riza
Call disguised as legitimate Google Ads support line. They ask for your account details then have you wait while they "check" if you're eligible for free Google Ads Support. Of course you're not, then they want to transfer you to another dept. probably to sell you a service. Upon asking to share screen the official way real Google support do it through www.support.google.com, these con artists try and get you to share through Google Hangouts which is a free program accessible to anyone. A complicated scam so be ware of these snakes!!!
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.
