Google Review Impersonation

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

There is an individual that created a gmail account in my name and posted a review of my company under that account. The review is inappropriate and it seems as though I wrote it, and I need it removed. I’ve flagged it several times and filed an Impersonation Report complaint with Google but I’m not having any success. Any ideas how to get this review removed.

Please help and Thank you!

your name isn't that unique on this planet.

How can you say the reveiwer is impersonating you?

Please elaborate bit more

Specifically, this is an angry x-boyfriend.  He created a google email with my first name and last name and is posting reviews using the email address.  So now it seems as though I am posting reviews on my own company webiste.  And they are inappropriate reviews.

Please provide in this case  more details to investigate and escalate 

At the least the listing in question and any proof  you are working for this company as well.

I work for this company and here is the posting:

My LinkedIn profile has my current employer information and of course I have pay stubs!  Any ideas how to remove this?
