Ive been forwarding a bunch of FAKE listing URLS to Dan Austin

He is able to have a few removed but there are some that just wont get deleted

these are all SPAMMERS. There is no Physical locations for these business

Was wondering if a member here knows where else we can REPORT these

or should I post URLS here ? and maybe some can foward them ?

Dan has a good operation. I'd stick with whatever arraignment you have.

Up until recently I've seen listings for locksmiths in my area that didn't even have a phone number listed. For a while it seemed like every week a couple more would pop up with no phone number or even an address sometimes. I know that google sends out an adwords credit whenever you start a places listing and I was wondering if someone was creating a bunch of bogus listings just to reap the adwords credits. This would also explain why the adwords prices in my area were getting out of control...... this seems to have subsided though, in Nashville anyway.
