Square Trade claims partnership with Google

Had a telemarketer call from Square Trade. She went into her script and mentioned a partnership with Google. I stopped her to ask for a further description of this partnership. She could not explain it. She could only use the word "partnership."

I'm certain there is no such partnership. I'm not asking if there is one (but if there is please enlighten me). I'm here to give others a heads up about this deceptive practice of trading off of Google's name. Shame on Square Trade!

I did a site: search at google and searched the square trade website for the word 'google'. I only got three pages that had the word 'google' on them. None of them mentioned the word 'partnership' or 'partner'.

[google.com...]

Looks like they do have some endorsment for Square Trade.

They should better educate their Telemarketers.

An official relationship does indeed exist between square trade and google. If you're working with adwords and rx products then you must be square trade approved. What was square trade trying to sell - I can't see a reason why they would need telemarketers.

It appears to me that they are on an aggressive sales push to bring in more companies and individuals who are wanting to sell pharma through Google's AdWords program...
whether they are fully qualified pharmacies or affiliates selling for fully qualified pharmacies..

Additional:

if you go to Google and type in "online drugs" and look at the PPC ads to the right you will see a very interesting listing there...looks like the .gov wants to be in game...I would venture so say that their PPC campaign is "well funded"
