Impostors who claim to be from Google or associated with Google (they are neither). They either claim your business Google+ profile is not complete/verified or that they can raise your search engine rankings through their SEO services. Today they tried the SEO angle with me, but since they call multiple times a day from different spoofed numbers, in about an hour I’m sure they’ll call back again from a different number and try the other angle. They spoof numbers from all across the USA to avoid being tracked and in an attempt to make you believe they are from Google (or that they are associated/partnered with Google) to persuade you to purchase their bogus services so they can obtain your financial info. They call all numbers (including cell and Do Not Call list numbers), and they hang up if you ask them to verify their identity, their company, or ask too many probing questions. They are looking for an easy mark. When they call you and ask to speak to the business owner, immediately ask them what business they are trying to reach. That always throws them off their call script, and they cannot answer your question because your number was robodialed. They don’t know who or what business they called, only that they need to deceive you into signing up for their bogus service so they can obtain your financial info.
