A couple of year ago I received  call from a guy "from Google" who wanted to update my business site (now retired) . He had a good presentation and I let him run is pitch. He even used FLASH to to take control of my browser showing me how he could improve the site. When I said I was not interested he got agressive an ended up saying Google would take down my site if I did not agree to his proposition.
I told "OK take it down" and hung it. --glen
