Front page of the Herald, 3 weeks behind WOBH

I see the Herald has run a front-page story about the dodgy ratbags passing themselves off as Google, a story we covered 3 weeks ago on July 26.

Fraud police are investigating a New Zealand company calling itself GoogleDirectory – set up with no links to the internet giant but which has listed thousands of businesses and state agencies.

The company launched last month, but had been signing on companies since at least May, promoting itself as a new online marketing tool.

Detective Sergeant Aaron Pascoe, of the Auckland central police financial crime unit, said police had received several fraud complaints from businesses. 

I wonder if people realised they’d been tucked after a series of posts we ran on July 26.

Anyone from Google NZ want to look into this scam?

Simon McLeod didn’t take kindly to those articles, he phoned at the time and abused and threatened me…I know, hilarious really…I’m still waiting for the lawyers letters he threatened.
