How do you verify a location by phone or email?

Hi

 

I read in the support pages that you can verify a local business location using a code provided by phone or email. How do you do this as all I see when I want to verify a page is 'verify by postcard'...

 

Thanks

 

Michael

Hello Michael,
The verification code is sent by postcard in most cases.
There is no verification by e-mail.
Verification by phone is reserved to existing unverified business listings that Google feels confident they exist.

We need to verify immediately. Someone is posting wrong phone numbers to our listing.
