Google Maps/SEO Fake Invoices



  1. Slow it down - Scams are often designed to create a sense of urgency. Take time to ask questions and think it through.
  2. Spot check - Do your research to double check the details you are getting. Does what they’re telling you make sense?
  3. Stop! Don’t send - No reputable person or agency will ever demand payment or your personal information on the spot.


Google does not charge for inclusion in Google Maps. Be wary of scam calls, pop-ups, or fake invoices from someone claiming to be Google. Make sure to perform due diligence on any financial transaction for services that you or your company may have employed.
