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.
