Hello all,

I came across 25 fake google locals by accident. I reported via the Google Business redressal form without a reply. I then reported via the community forum and the thread was deleted/hidden. :eek:

Can anyone here help, they have fake reviews, telephone numbers with the same prefix and the same person answers all the telephone numbers.


Let's get this spam off the map.

Thanks

Daniel

The redressal form should have generated an automatic email with a ticket number. However you will not be notified if Google takes action against the listings.

I know this is an old thread but NEW spam is here again:

Look at this listing:

Look at the attached pic too - the listing is unverified, no street address and no website.

It ranks well for keywords that is £25+ a click keywords.

There are a lot of such listings. How have they created this??
