I closed my business 2 years ago but my phone number is still posted in Google Maps

I closed my business 2 years ago but my phone number is still posted in Google Maps. I have done everything I can find but I am still receiving calls. I could change my number and be done with it but there are other reasons why this is not possible! I am getting really frustrated with this. 

 

Steps I have done: 

  • Labeled my business as "permanently closed" in all of my google accounts
  • I have edited all of the information within each of those business profiles and replaced with "DELETED", "CLOSED", or filled all "000-000-0000"
  • I have closed every other listing with other companies such as Angie's list, Yelp, Facebook, and anywhere else I could think that google could pull them from
  • I have labeled the business as permanently closed countless times from other accounts just in google maps

I cannot find a phone number or email to get in contact with a real person at Google. Maybe I need to just knock on Google front door?

Does anyone know a number to call?

Hi

 

You can try one of the following options to get directly in touch with GMB support (the first one will allow you to request a phone call from a support person)
