Hello,

I've been getting some calls about verifying my business on google, I have already done so and believe this may be a scam. The caller claims to be based out of New Jersey but when they call they are using a local area code. They've promised to bump up my listing on google so that I am one of the first businesses to show up when someone is searching for the services I offer. I declined this service as I believe it to be a scam, I'm curious if anyone else has received calls like this also, they even told me that my business has not yet been verifyied on google. The name of the business was "Web Presence Expert Team" and they've claimed to be a partner with google. The number they called from was (401) 336-2642.

Hi Sarah

 

This definitely sounds like a scam. Google will never promise to move you up rankings.
