Google needs a Scam contact email or phone number…. they do have bots that scan the internet. Within 6 hours of 1st posting this thread they moved some of the bad actors to the end of their scroll. After 5 days all of the scams shown below are no longer listed in the Google search results. We are leaving this post in place in order to provide a review link to those who encounter the below listed websites.
We here at b4USA are always searching for American made products. While searching for a storage shed we Googgled the phrase ‘made in usa storage shed’. Upon reviewing the results we found several websites that advertise on Google:
Many of the sites: approx 20% of… that are given to the consumer searching for USA made, seem to be a scam. When doing further research on the products we found them to be priced much lower than other products made of the same caliper and American made. Sometimes if it is too good to be true it most likely is. Most of these sites have contact phone numbers that are also related to Google (“Google voice will try to connect you”) then after several rings, the message says (“The Google subscriber is not available”). We also find that many of the contact email address are related to @outlook.com.
We advise caution when dealing with these companies that claim to provide USA merchandise.
Please be aware before buying any product from the below listed webpages.
