A guy came into a buddy’s store claiming to work for Google. He had a business card and everything. He claimed to be able to sell ads online about his store for a one time flat fee. I’m not sure about the specifics about the story because I wasn’t there, but this sounds sketchy to me because I know google ads are sold on a click-by-click basis. He’s not a tech guy so he doesn’t understand. I’m going to guess that this is a scam/shakedown. Am I correct?
Edit: I learned a little more about this guy. He’s a “street view business certified photographer”. He doesn’t directly claim he works for google, but his business cards + the way he speaks makes you think that he does. u/memorex1150 just about nailed it!
