Business directory service, Finda, (which is part of the Yellow Pages Group) has alerted the Ministry of Consumer Affairs that they have recently become aware of a company falsely claiming to have a reseller relationship with Google.
"The company is calling itself ‘Front Page Google’ and is claiming to have secured the New Zealand rights to sell the front page for Google.
"This claim is false! Finda is an official data provider to Google in New Zealand, providing Google with local business data which Google uses for its Google Places listings.
"Finda has raised the matter with Google and they are looking into it. Anyone who wants to find out who is a verified Google partner can do so on Google Partner Search," says Finda
