Here Google responds to criticism by the Wall Street Journal about thousands of fake business profiles on Google Maps. It seems the fight never ends to outwit and outmanoeuvre nefarious scammers and criminals on the web. Google apparently removed 3 million fake business listings last year alone and the Wall Street Journal found 19 of 20 of the top listings for plumbers in a borough of New York were fake! Something for all of us to keep an eye on.
