Verification for Google Buisness duplicated and in complete mess...! HELP

HELP. I had a Google+ account for my business that was verified. Then I wanted to put it on the Google business maps, but in order to do that I needed [thought I needed] a new page. So I tried to verify it, but the code never came. So I created another page and asked for a code. I verified it the second time. Now none of it works because there are duplicate businesses verified here. HELP. I just want it to work and I tried following instructions but they don't work either. HELP.

 

My business name is: Eco Painting and decorating

c/o Laburnum Express, 86 Laburnum Road, LE5 1FR

07806881372

And just to confuse things Laburnum Express might also be registered there.  OMG. HELP!

Hello @BupSahn S,

This is a common problem. I would suggest calling Google directly to resolve this issue. 

There are many moving parts to this.

 

Contact Google with these links:

Actually of the three listings that you provided only ONE is an actual local listing. The other two are just pages in PLus that have no impact. One is an orphan page and the other is a brand page.

This is the actual local listing that is verified: https://plus.google.com/+EcopdOrg/posts

This is the verified brand page: https://plus.google.com/103859186612798244084/about

And this is the orphan page that no can ever find or is unlikely to see: https://plus.google.com/105461042545325649242/about

The brand page MAY be in one of your dashboards and you might be able to delete yourself (although its odd formattinng implies that it is an orphan page as well).

These types of orphaned pages are a result of various merges and verifications over time and usually even Google can't get rid of them. They are really seen by NO ONE and you really shouldn't worry about them. I am not sure but I don't think even support can remove them.
