Saving Google Places in the U.K. from Lies: Reporting Fake Listings

Any local market would’ve been vulnerable, even Google Places in the U.K. You can report and get rid of fake listings by reporting them to Google, namely regarding discrepancies in the location and contact details. In the demonstration, the federal offices’ contact numbers had an area code of 425, which pointed to Seattle, well away from San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

Google encouraged public participation in rooting out these fake listings. Limer reported that over 100,000 of these exist for locksmiths alone.
