I've been fighting this issue for months now and nothing seems to work. I've had conversations with Google support along with trying to claim the business listing with no success. We recently changed the name of the business and web address. When someone searches for the owner's name, the URL, or the business name, the GMB listing shows an individual rather than the business and it's marked as permanently closed. This has caused major confusion for our customers and I'm not sure what else we can do on our end. Please help!
