Google Business hijacked

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We have 2 google my business locations verified, 


This second one, if you click on the search bar, comes up with "hehehehehe lel" after our business name.
It doesn't have this on the main listing, but it comes up whenever anyone tries to search for our business. 
I can't seem to fix this, and it is making us look like a joke. 


We also have a bogus location using our business name ( - how do we close this listing down. We can't take ownership because we can't verify it via post. 


Please help!

I can't replicate this.

See my two screen grabs below:

Hi Helmut,


Thank you for investigating. I've got a screengrabs below. This comes up on multiple devices, platforms (chrome, google maps, etc) and multiple people. When you use google maps and start typing AAPES in maps for mobile devices it comes up with the bogus location as well as the "heheh lel"
