sleazy sales agentIn this episode of the ‘In The Trenches Small Business Marketing Podcast” I do an “Ask Kyle” episode and let you know if Google is really calling your business multiple times a week or if it is something else.

Debbie asks: “Hi Kyle quick question, should I be getting any kind of phone calls from Google+ account. When I call back they say I can be removed from the list? Any clue? Thanks -Deb”

Here is Kyle’s Answer about these Fake Google Calls:  


Here is the section on Google’s Website talking about these Fake Calls

Here is the section of interest from Google’s Help page:

Google telemarketing calls

Watch out for parties calling and selling services claiming to have a special relationship with or claiming to be Google. Often, these parties are telemarketers that are not affiliated with Google and are trying to leverage the Google brand to sell your business some type of online service. Keep in the mind the following:

Google does not place robocalls.
Google does not call to “update your front page listing” or ask you to “claim your free website.”
Google does not charge for inclusion in Google Search or Google My Business.
Resources:

If you are continually being contacted by a telemarketer claiming these things and are on the do not call list, you can file a complaint at the National Do Not Call Registry.

I hope that helps you avoid getting led astray.
