Company Using UPS Address Nationally

Good Afternoon,

 

I have encountered many businesses in the automotive glass repair industry that are using UPS addressed as their physical location in multiple states.

 

I find this quite unfair for those local businesses that actually have physical businesses in the area.I have attempted to mark them as "never existed" or "spam" but the edits do not get published.

 

In the past 2 months I have found that these two companies are claiming to have locations in multiple states and are using UPS store addresses to show up in each city. 

 

These companies are:

 

Auto Glass Shop | http://www.autoglass-shop.com/

JMC Auto Glass  | https://jmcautoglass.com/

 

I have found that they tend to use shopping centers with UPS stores to claim that they have a physical location.

I've provided a few of the locations below but I can ensure you this is only a small portion.

 

 

Auto Glass Shop (Cincinnati)

Auto Glass Shop (Atlanta)

Auto Glass Shop (SF)

JMC Auto Glass (Tucson)

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/JMC+Auto+Glass+-+Tucson/@32.2208679,-110.9459223,19z/data=!4m9!1m3...

 

 

I'd appreciate your assistance with this matter.

 

Thank you all!

I think you'll want to post this to the spam and policy category, since you're not apparently using the API. The Googlers that monitor this topic likely don't typically take action on spam.
