I've never had one try to extort money saying my listing would be removed, but I get calls every week from companies claiming to be associated with Google. 

 

I get calls all the time saying that my listing will be removed!  Funny, most of them come in on a Tuesday.  

They open their recorded message with a panic sentence.  "You business is in danger of being removed .... "  Then, if you listen, you'll hear the "we're a third party representing Google", or something like that.  

Here's something new-ish.  We all know spoofing phone numbers has been around a while, but now, they spammers are somehow getting into your contact list and spoofing your number with the caller id so the receiver thinks it's you calling!  ***There's an app for that!***   :angry:

I can't find the link to the story because our news sites here, SUCK!  I'll try and find it when I can.

Notice how the article says it's also legal for the caller to disguise their voice!?
