Hi Everyone,


Just received an email form and I can't tell if it's genuine. It starts .. I don't recognise the email so the answer will be no but is the email genuine


Many thanks,

This is Anna again from the Google My Business support team.

I’m writing to remind you that another user recently requested ownership rights to your  local page at on Google.

To solve this issue, we need a decision from you about the ownership of the page within 4 days* of receiving this email. Resolving this issue is important because each local business on Google can only have one verified owner.

The user requesting ownership has asked us to pass the following message to you:

"Please transfer"

@Mike G


the question is:

who is the business owner of and did this owner give  you or the guy behind the mail address quotet in Anna's mail the order to manage the business on behalf of the business owner in his  dashboard


Depending on the facts you can and should answer to Anna (Anna is a google bot behind the procedure "Someone else verified my business" to request ownership transfer)
