Robo call from Google?

Google does not:

  • charge for inclusion in Google My Business or in Google Search.
  • offer to improve your search ranking or manage your business’s online profile.
  • ask you for your password or verification code. You should never provide sensitive information about your account (like your password and verification code) to a caller.

If you receive a robocall—a call placed with a recorded voice—for any of the above reasons, it is not from Google. The Federal Trade Commission has established a Robocalls resources website with additional information about robocalls and steps you can take if you receive one.

Unfortunately, not all phone calls from people claiming to be associated with Google are legitimate.

You may receive a phone call from Google to verify your business or confirm business details for Google Maps, or a call from a Google account manager whom you’ve spoken with before.

Client Focus: Beans Coffee Bar – Fargo

Beans Coffee Bar in Fargo, ND has an interesting back story, and it’s a large part of the ambience. Heidi Holland’s father was a popular former NDSU football coach who nicknamed her “Beans”. I wonder if he ever guessed she’d later open a coffee shop with the same moniker?

This first location is in a bustling location on Veterans Boulevard and Amber Valley Parkway. An area exploding with new businesses. So what makes Beans stand out? It a beautiful, contemporary setting. It has thoughtful touches like numerous power outlets with A/C and USB connectors, even on the bar top. There’s also a kid friendly area with plenty to keep the little ones occupied while you enjoy a cup of brew. But mini donuts may be the star attraction. You get one free with a hot drink, or they can be ordered by the bag or bucket. Always made fresh to order. What goes better with coffee than a fresh donut?
