When I had my Cyl. Head shop I would stop them and ask for their billing info. It went like this:

ME "Good afternoon, Tom's Cylinder heads"

Him: "good afternoon! This is Joe at Acme whatever, How are you today?"

ME "Good, Joe"

HIM "Tom, I want to talk to you about our widget that.."

ME "Hold on Joe, I'm going to need some billing information from you"

HIM "excuse Me?"

ME "Joe, I'm a consultant that charges $150.00 an hour. Lets get your credit card info and then you can talk as long as you like. card number please, Joe."

HIM "click....."

They've been calling me a lot lately too. I do some phone prospecting myself so have a heart for someone just trying to make a buck, but they are selling crappy searches. I tell them if they can get me the number one position for xyz, I'll take it, but there is no way I'm paying for a five word search that only a couple people have ever used.

i just set the phone down and let them go through their script. Hang up when I hear the off the hook sound.

When the kids were little I would ask them if they wanted to talk on the phone and give it to them.

ITS NOT GOOGLE ! Its SEO companies posing as Google trying to get your business Website to sign with them for better search rankings.
