It’s a question I receive quite frequently: Clients who say they just got a call from someone saying their Google listing will disappear if they don’t do something RIGHT NOW. Or they are not appearing on Google. Or they can always rank no. 1 on Google. And they want to know if they need to respond to those calls.
Now, thanks to Google, I have a new answer: Report these calls. They’re scams.
ZD Net reported in its May 24 newsletter that Google is taking legal action against several U.S. firms that make these calls. The Federal Trade Commission unsealed documents about the case earlier in May.
If you get one of these robocalls, you use this form to report the violation. You can bookmark the form so you can easily find it in the future.
