I seem to have a brand account I did not set up

I discovered that I seem to have a BRAND ACCOUNT which I do not recall setting up.  I wish to delete same.  But in attempting to delete I must check that I will assume all financial responsibilities for that account which I did not set up.

 

Is there a way to determine my financial exposure prior to deleting a BRAND ACCOUNT?

 

I have never seen this BRAND Account before and am wondering where it came from.

 

Was I hacked?

 

Please advise.

Hi @Robert L

 

If it is in your account you must have created in some way.

 

Are you sure its a brand page and not a personal page.

 

Could you provide a url so that I can make sure its a Brand page.

 

Do you mean this verbage

 

https   myaccount.google.com u 0 b 102750501799311150302 deleteaccount continue https   business.google.com u 0.png

 

This is if you also have an Adwords account attached to the page or Adsense, which means you will still be billed for ads displayed etc.

 

 

Its fine to actually select all and remove.
