Interesting Phone Spam

Got a call from Google today. Or so I thought, judging by the caller ID screen on my phone.


Turns out it was a pre-recorded message from some company promising top rankings in search engines. "Press 1 to learn how you can achieve a top ranking or press 2 to be taken off our list".

"Cheeky" is probably not the right term to describe whoever is behind this scheme, but surely this is no way to run a business, deceiving people. Plus, here I am getting my hopes up to get invited to a nice meal at Google.
