One of our local competitors is double serving ads.  They are running 4 ads, yes 4, which all appear for multiple queries.  I reported it a week ago and so far nothing has happened.  How long can I expect it to take for something to be done?

I think the process takes less than it used to, but a few years back I remember it took over three months in my case.

And more recently, before some updates, it also took a few months for an advertiser to be suspended for using ex-VAT prices in the shopping feeds.

Sorry for not having better news to bring.
