I created the above business listing on the 12th of july with the hope of getting my postcard to get it verified which i haven't gotten till now. i realized that the contact information of the listing has been changed by a competitor who is trying to steal my listing. This listing with the address map above belong to me and was created by me. i have 3 customer reviews already before the contact information was tampered with. i do not want to change it back to avoid spamming so as not to get banned. however i don't know what to do about this. i need a very quick answer about how to get my business information corrected to the way it was and enhance it verification.

@Learn M I know it's been a few weeks since you posted here - is this still an issue for you or have you been able to resolve the problem?

it still remains an issue for me as i have been able to contact two of my customers to delete their reviews and it's left with one review, the information was changed from www.ijmbe.org.ng and 07037368149 to ijmbcouncil.com and a phone number that is not related to my business but this listing still has my business address.

to also make this very clear the main reason i created this new listing that was changed with map ID https://www.google.com/maps/place/IJMB/@7.2432317,3.2654529,7z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x103a4b92a5c...

was because i couldn't find my verified listing on my google my business page but once i use the map i can locate it https://www.google.com.ng/maps/place/IJMB/@8.481591,4.543591,7z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sIJMB+kuto!3m4!1s...

i can't make amendment or edits to the old one because it cannot be found when i login to my google business account and the new one was tampered with by a competitor trying to steal my business away from me. I hope you help me look into this and give me a reply as well.

I therefore will block this thread here for any new replies.
