Multiples google maps by one company gold coast cab Ventura

Hi,

I would like to bring to your attention that we have an unfair competition that we are facing for Ventura, Oxnard and Camarillo Google map.

gold coast cab has more than 4 google maps in Ventura. If you type Ventura taxi or any keywords related you will get surprise how much gold coast cab are cheating and limiting the competition to businesses and limiting the consumers to have a wider choice.

Look it up online on Google for Ventura location as following :

 

Gold coast cab (805) 444-6969

Cab 4 you (805) 850-5054

Easy ride taxis (805) 444-6969

A cab for you Ventura 5443 Ralston St #105 (805) 222-0169

 

All these maps listed above belong to gold coast cab. Same person answering the phone, letting customer waiting ridiculous time because customer get confused with all these business names but same company.

 

I created Google map in Oxnard location and it was taken down, I created another one in Ventura and it was taken down. 

We are facing unfair competition and gold coast cab is misleading the online users and community.

 

 

Please advise.

 

Thank you in advanced,

Ben

Yes he claims to be the owner of all these businesses. Rosie's Cleaning
Service, Rosie's taxi cab, Ventura Taxi Service, Camarillo Cab Service,
Oasis Camarillo Taxi, Oxnard Taxi, Oxnard Taxi Service and more.
None of the taxi companies are registered with the local police department
and or any government agency.
All the phone numbers ring to the same person (Mr. Benaoud) Please search
(taxi in Ventura) or any related keywords. These companies are illegitimate
spam listings.

SPAM & Scam Business (Rosie Taxi Cab) GMB Not a legal Business on Google.

Brian W. is the one that started this thread. He is the owner of Rosie Taxi Cab. He has eliminated all the competition in the taxi business in our area.
He has more listings than I ever had. My listings where real businesses and now I have none. His business is not registered with anyone anywhere. The only place (Rosie Taxi Cab) is registered at is GMB. BRIAN W. is Rosie Taxi Cab!

We spoke about (Brian W.) Once before.....This is one of the alias name
that Mr. Bendaoud uses. He uses many different names to confuse even people
like yourself. His real name is Abdellatif Bendaoud


He has written bad reviews for all the cab companies in the local area. He
has manipulated even you. I have all the proof needed for google to close
his account and stop him form using google.
If google even know half of what is going on they would reinstate my
listing and band him for life.


37 fake 1star review at our listings 22 just on Google and the rest are on
different sites like yelp and YP. facebook and many other places.

Our Facebook Account has 3 reviews from Mr. Bendaoud and i have all the
screen shots as needed.

Mr. Geissler
Please consider talking with me via phone and PLEASE NOTIFY GOOGLE OF THIS
PERSON.


Look at (Brian W.) AKA (BEN)


Notice that Brian W. Singed his complainant Thank you ((BEN.)) he call
himself BEN. Short for BENdaoud. his last name.


Brian W. has used your help to close my business and many others now.

Look at this link.* NOTE:...ALL THE PEOPLE LISTED BELOW ARE THE SAME
PERSON.*

READ BEFORE YOU CALL THIS CO AKA gold coast cab/ Camarillo taxi service
I am Ben, owner and operator of Rosie Taxi Cab Camarillo Cab service.
I want to take a moment to write this review for denunciating Mr jim
carmona owner of this gold coast cab co. I used to work for this guy and I
can testify by this review this is the most unethical, unrespectful person
I ever met.
I used to drive some of his cabs and I want to EMPHASIZE that all his cabs:
- do not met securities standard, old cars, no commercial license, no
stickers, brakes wont work properly, smelly and he wants to charge me for
his transmission which was broken for weeks.
- I got pulled over by the Police and they gave me $1200.00 ticket for
driving his car without insurance at all !! What type of person is he
really ? He put innocent drivers working 12hrs and over without insurance.
GOD THANK YOU I had my insurance for my back up.
If you drive for this gold coast cab : check if he has a valid insurance
before you turn on the car !
He comes to advertise all over Camarillo and leave the customer waiting for
45 mn because he needs to send a driver all way from Ventura. To
corroborate this: last week I picked up a customer and she missed her job
interview at ADP because of your poor service.
Furthermore, all friends that I knew at that time either left or quit due
to Mr jim carmona's unfair practices and he can't pay you for the money
because you have to beg to get paid.... often he says I dont have the money.
Really, think twice before your use this gold coast cab aka Camarillo taxi
service. I been here in America 3 years, and I never heard someone or
another taxi company talk nice about Mr jim carmona gold coast cab.

Don't work for gold coast cab. My friend got pulled over and got $12.000
ticket for driving his car without insurance.
Be aware also, they overcharge customers for coming in Camarillo



This is my STATEMENT.





Hello and thank you for your time in reading what I have to say. The
forgoing information is written by me, Jimmy Carmona, Owner and Operator of
Gold Coast Cab. The information written here is true and fact. I state my
name and my personal and business repartition on the truth and validity of
this information.





I don't even really know where to start so I will do the best I can to
inform you of all that has taken place in the last 9 years in the taxi
industry on Google here in Ventura County CA, USA.

In early 2008 I listed my business on Google Places. Gold Coast Cab was up
and running. We at this time are the only taxi cab service listed on
Google. In 2008 we are the only taxi cab company to have a website up and
running for our business. You might say we were the pioneers of the online
taxi business in 2008. Only because no other taxi business in the county
had listed or even bought their own domain names at this time. In the first
year of business I decided that if the other companies in my area did not
buy there company domain names that I would perches them so that I could
stop them from using them (Later on I found this was Not Good business
practices). At this time in mid of 2008 one of the other companies Yellow
Cab started there Google Places listing. Soon to follow 3 more companies
listed there taxi businesses on Google. By the end of 2009 there are more
than 74 taxi cab businesses listed in Ventura County on Google Places. In
2010 business is going good. All the companies that are listed on Google
Places are up and running without any problems. Remember there are 74
different named TAXI Businesses listed on “Google Places” in Ventura
County. In 2011 I called most all the phone numbers listed on those
listings and found that almost every company listed there business at least
9 times or more with different names and different phone numbers. In 2011 I
went to our County Government Center and ask to see the list of all the
taxicab businesses recorded here in our County. I was shocked to see only
14 taxi cab businesses had been recorded and permitted to do business in
our county. I myself had 6 websites and 4 business listings listed on
“Google Places” at that time. Below is a list of all the taxi cab
businesses listed on “Google Places” in Ventura County in 2012

All Business Names Above were listed on Google Places in 2012. Only 14 Taxi
Cab Companies Recorded & Permitted In Ventura County In 2012. My Company
Gold Coast Cab “was and still is” recorded and permitted to work in Ventura
County. Every Taxi Cab Company Business legitimate or not had more than 1
listing for the same business including myself.

In early 2014 things changed drastically! Google Places changed and became
Google My Business. I think I had to read and agree to a new guideline
announcement for the change effecting my business listings on Google. So I
clicked I agree and continued with things as usual.



In March 2013 Mr. Abdellatif Bendaoud started as a trainee taxi cab driver
here at Gold Coast Cab. In late 2013 Mr. Bendaoud was terminated for to
many traffic violations. He was new in our country and had not good driving
skills. Mr. Bendaoud went back to work at Rosie’s Cleaning Service with his
wife the owner of Rosie Cleaning Service listed on Google Places out of
Santa Barbara CA, USA. He applied to drive again for Gold Coast Cab in
early 2014 as he claimed to have better driving skills and paid off all his
driving infraction violation fines. We decided to give him a second chance.
In January 2014 Mr. Bendaoud began driving taxi for Gold Coast Cab for the
second time. In March 2014 Mr. Bendaoud crashed my taxi into a huge cement
post. No injuries but my taxi was a total loss. Mr. Bendaoud told me he was
not going to pay for damages because the crash was my fault do to my text
he was reading at the time of the crash. Mr. Abdellatif Bendaoud told me “I
not pay you damage or anything you not good”. “I will start my business and
you see me beat you out.” I said to him what are you taking about. He said
“you don’t know business I start my business and kill THIS GOLD COAST
CAB!!” he cursed me “F*** YOU!” And stated. “I kill your business like I
kill your taxi”! As all this is taking place I am giving him a ride home
from our office. I am stunned I can’t believe I am hearing this from him
and, after I have given him a second chance to become a good cab driver.
This was the first time I had ever given a second chance to a person with
so many traffic infractions. I told him to be a man of your word and pay
for the damages please. He gets out of the car at his home and tells me “f
off you gona see believe me when I tell you…you gona lose this company I
take it” This was the last I had ever hoped to see of Mr. Bendaoud as he
exited my car.



By the end of the day our Google Listing “Taxi cabs Ventura” had three “1
star reviews”. Two days later Mr. Bendaoud listed a taxi company name on
Google My Business by the Name (Rosie Taxi Cab) By June 2014 Mr. Bendaoud
has 5 businesses listed on Google. 1. Rosie Taxi Cab 2. Ventura Taxi
Service 3. Oxnard Taxi 4. Oxnard Taxi Taxi 5. Camarillo Cab Service.

I too had more than on listing for my businesses on Google. These are
the names I was using 1. Gold Coast Cab 2. Taxi cabs Ventura 3. Cab 4 You
4. Camarillo Taxi Service 5. Easy Ride Taxis by the end of June 2014 my
Google Listing (Gold Coast Cab) (Taxi cabs Ventura) (Camarillo Taxi
Service) had received more than (90) 1 star reviews. Please remember that
Gold Coast Cab was the first taxi cab company listed on Google in our area
back in 2008. Not only 90+ negative reviews listed on Google But our
Facebook and other places like Yelp.com and YP.com suffers as well.

Since 2008 till March 2014 we had only (17 Google reviews 4.7 rating) after
Mr. Bendaoud started his business we somehow received over 90+ (1) star
reviews on Google by the time my Google account was “suspended” in late
July early August 2014. For about a period of 2 months someone kept marking
our business permanently closed. I kept having to mark as not closed. Then
our business was Suspended Again. This time Google wanted to confirm my
address again. I had to wait for a post card for each one of my business
names again. I had 3 address total one for Gold Coast Cab and 2 for
companies that I have bought from other owners that sold to me as they
decided to retire.

1. Cab 4 You

2. Camarillo Taxi Service

I started in late 2014 (Easy Ride Taxis) listed on Google as well. I have
the taxis and the company names recorded with the county of Ventura 800 S.
Victoria Ave. Ventura, CA 93001, USA. I used the addresses of our long time
taxi drivers home addresses. They would sit and wait for calls close by
home to be close to that address listed. That way we are seen in each city
we service not just Oxnard. I have all the proof needed and will provide at
any time requested.

>From June of 2014 till about late July of 2015 we kept fighting with Google
to keep our business open. Someone kept marking our listings closed. My
Google account was suspended at least 5 times in that period. Finally at
the end of July or early August 2015 my account was suspended for good. I
no longer had use of Google Maps Google plus or Google My Business. I
called many times and spoke with GMB help service and one of the tech’s
told me to delete my account completely and start over. This is exactly
what I did. I deleted my email and all my Google Account under this email
GoldCoastCab@Gmail.com this was my very first Google Account and my only
Google Account at the beginning.

I can go on for hours writing this date by date of all the spam listings
on google by all of us in the taxi business in this area. I have all the
links and all the screen shots you need to prove that all of us should be
suspended. Not just a few select companies.

>From 2014 (74) taxi cab companies listed on Google My Business in the
Ventura County Area……… to Now 12/20/16 only 5 in Ventura and 4 in Oxnard.
With Rosie Taxi Cab in the top position. How did this listing get so many
“5 star reviews” in such a short amount of time? Did Mr. Bendaoud kill off
all the other companies’ listings as well as mine?



Please investigate not only Mr. Bendaoud but all Business Listings in the
Category Taxi Service in our area. Please take a look at these images,
links and screen shots from the past to present.Hello and thank you for
your time in reading what I have to say. The forgoing information is
