Got a phone call about making my listing more attractive to custimers. Paid $300 and they said to wait for a code in the mail to activate everything. I have recieved no code and it had been about a month. Besecker’s Diner is the listing. 1 Recommended Answer 13 Replies 55 Upvotes

 He  telling the truth. I called Google and they tried to  charge me $300 to update my information. They would not let me do it myself

It’s a free service, these scammers that call are very slick in the words they choose to use.

I received a similar phone call. They came extremely close to stating they were Google, but never said it directly. They even seemed quite professional on the phone, even transferring me to another extension prior to payment just to ensure the details were correct. While on the phone with them, I searched the phone number they called from. Needless to say, I quickly hung up after reading the search results.

@James Hawkins 9420 - That is not true.  Me and a business partner both have separate Google Maps listings with no storefronts.  I've also set them up for clients before.
