Those business and name are probably fake, scammers tend to change denominations more often than they change their underwear.

 

Additionally, scammers could use existing and legit personal or company names without their knowledge. 

Using the name of a legitimate business is common among scammers. And, OP could find themselves on the wrong end of a defamation case if that happened and they badmouthed the legit company that knew nothing about it.
