In the Google My Business Help Community Forum a few people reported receiving a SMS message (number used +1(626)605-3635) similar to this:
“Google has detected number used for Name of the Business is a mobile number. Under updated policy, mobile numbers used for GMB listings must opt in to receive SMS from customers or else the mobile number will be removed from the listing within 30 days. Do you want to continue to use your mobile number for your business?“
Beware the sender is not Google and you should disregard the message.
There is another Scam, Business owners are receive a call from “Google Update Company” telling that your listing its not verified because it shows suggested edits and manage this listing still. Also they said there is supposed to be a check box at the bottom of listing showing account is verified.
Bogus claim and company, as the “Manage listing” and “suggest edit” will always appear, it’s normal and is working as intended by Google!
The so-called “google update company” are fraudsters, if you receive those calls dismiss them!
