Google Maps Phone Call?

Post by ColinM » Tue Apr 14, 2020 5:47 am

I received a telephone call yesterday, from a guy purporting to be from "Google Maps" asking if I worked from an office.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I took this to be a hoax and just hung up.

Anyone else had a similar experience "from Google Maps"?

May not have been a hoax Colin... See the following:

And the following with the conversation of a call between Google Maps and person / company they called

Hey BC, you never cease to amaze me with your ability to have/find stuff :D , I tried for ages to find stuff like that. Certainly from the first blog, as the number was a 02 which would make it New South Wales .

Thanks BC - I thought as much.
