    Perhaps this explains Google's new found interest in Scraped pages that out rank the originals.

    A network engineer in San Francisco, Ca. USA spoofed Google maps with black hat methods and outranked the offices of the FBI and the Secret Service. When people called the numbers that ranked, they telephoned a number that the engineer set up to both forward and recorded those calls.

    After recording two calls, the engineer went to the Secret Service office with his evidence. For his efforts, the engineer was was arrested, read his Miranda rights, and placed in a cell. After an interview, he was released.

    Google, so far, has refused to comment.
