Images from Unverified Duplicate Listings show up on Maps?

How can I go about removing multiple duplicate pages for one of my clients? I've tried reporting them as an imitation of me (I had read in an article to do this) but I haven't received a form to report it after requesting it. These duplicate pages are not verified as mine are, but under Google Maps search, their images show instead of mine. This is important because my client has just rebranded and now there are two different logos floating around. If anyone can help guide me here, I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

This a link to my verified Google+ page for our client's Fayetteville, Arkansas location: https://plus.google.com/102824936632024359012 These are links to the duplicate Google+ pages: https://plus.google.com/108268479200041550454 https://plus.google.com/108215531777237443192 When typing in the address on Google Maps, the images used on the preview are images NOT from my verified Google+ page. Why would that be? This is important because we just completed a total rebrand of their business so the logos and information is different, and we need consistency in their online presence. I ran across an article that explained how to go about deleting duplicate Google+ pages that are not under your own ownership, and it recommended to report each page as an imitation of myself. I did this, and it ends in me requesting a form be sent to me, which I have yet to receive. Any bit of help on this would be so great! Thanks in advance!

Hi @Cranford W

 

First off, someone did attempt to create those unverified pages.

 

Have you checked your dashboard? are they in there, if so, delete them

 

https://business.google.com/manage/

 

The only way I can think of getting them deleted ( you could not claim ownership as they are suspended pages) is to contact business support to see if they could remove them.

Another option would be to go through and report each image.  more >> report
