Fraudsters go to Google and post their number in the name of the company instead of customer care of big companies. In this way the number and address are listed on Google through the Google Business Account. To deceive people, thugs also make fake websites similar to that company. Apart from this, there is an option to edit the contact details of big companies and other institutions in Google Map and Google Search. Fraudsters take advantage of this too.
