2 or 3 adwords ads for same search result, SAME company, different names

A competitor is running multiple ads for the same keyword combination.

 

The results show 3 different "companies", each have a name, address, website, etc. but phones get forwarded to the same office.

 

How do I report multiple adwords listing spam?

 

thank you.

I am not physically in the area where the competitor is running the ads. When using preview tool, you are unable to do as instructions dictate: right click and copy link. I have asked client to find and copy the link in that area but it would be better if people could report this issue without physically having to be in the area to pull up the ads. Probably a lot of abuse that is not reported due to this flaw. 

 

I believe I managed to get the right link and filled out the form properly. Hopefully I will see a resolution. As of today the ads are still running. 

 

Thank you again for your quick reply and helpful assistance.
