Over the past several months I have received telemarketing calls from

Each call has come after hours with the caller leaving the following voice mail message:

“Calling to let you know that after searching Google, a satisfied customer found your website on and gave you a positive rating for being a good local business. To see your rating, go to and enter your business telephone number into the blue box. Again, that’s”

Although flattered, I am highly certain after having visited their website after each voice mail – no such thing occurred.

To Merchant Circle’s credit, using an auto dialer to drum up local advertising business is somewhat innovative but in my particular case whom does think they are kidding?
