I apparently have a duplicate account, and request a code, but when I enter the code does not work, can you help me to update my business account?

Hi @Arge D


You cant verify via API.


You should not be verifying a duplicate business page as this may force both into suspension.


Identify the verified page, then identify the duplicate.


Then contact business support, to merge the duplicate into the verified one.


If you cant locate them, then please provide the Name, address and tel number and I can try and track them down.
