Attempts to Hijack Google My Business Pages
CCR Data Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, April 27, 2021 1600 hrs
This is a CTAS notification alert from CCR Technology Partners.
CCR’s Security team has received reports of ongoing attempts to hijack Google My Business pages. Scammers will request ownership of the Google My Business page and are hoping for it to be ignored, as they may be able to request Google transfer ownership from the rightful owner of the Business page to them after 3 days with no response to their request, as per Google’s policy.
CCR recommends that users who receive requests for ownership of a Google My Business to deny it immediately. If an unauthorized person takes control of a Google My Business page, it’s recommended to contact Google immediately for assistance.
The CCR CTAS Notification System was created to keep you informed of possible threats to your corporate network environment.
