Duplicate Listing

There is a duplicate listing of my business that will not go away. A few months back I spoke with a Google representative, went through the steps to correctly remove this listing. It went away for awhile but is not back and my actual verified listing is not showing up. How do I get this listing removed? I go in a report this listing as a duplicate nearly every day and it still will not go away.

Sorry @Jordan Burleson

 fro chiming in here 

and nope @Michael P

 

It (https://plus.google.com/+PersonalInjuryLawyerMichaelJPisanchynJrScranton) should not come up for a search as mentioned by you as "should come up when you search Pisanchyn Law Firm"

 

And there are twwo good reason why it shouldn't pop up:

 

the first reason:

the naming of 

https://plus.google.com/+PersonalInjuryLawyerMichaelJPisanchynJrScranton  violates their guide lines (no city names allowed in a GoogleMyBuiness listing)

second reason:

there is a duplicate called "Pisanchyn Law Firm LLC" and this name is correct and not violating their guidelines

Hello,

 

The business name is Pisanchyn Law Firm Scranton, this is the link: https://plus.google.com/u/1/b/112045864791733463563/+PersonalInjuryLawyerMichaelJPisanchynJrScranton... (maps link: https://www.google.com/maps?cid=17087086648330164821&hl=en)

 

The above is the verified business that should come up when you search Pisanchyn Law Firm however, the below is what comes up instead. The below is an unverified duplicate.

 

Pisanchyn Law Firm LLC; I can't find a google my business or google + link but here is the maps link for it: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pisanchyn+Law+Firm+LLC/@41.4072999,-75.7332187,12z/data=!4m18!1m12...

So I should remove the Scranton off of Pisanchyn Law Firm Scranton, then?

 

And there is no way to completely remove the other? We didn't even create that one.

 

Thank you for sharing the guideline violation, I was not aware of that.

@michael p

I deleted the unverified listing.

Give it a day or so to disappear entirely 

Actually your verified listing is live as

When I use some of my key words it pulls an unverified version of my listing instead of the verified ones with reviews, any thoughts
