Accidentally claimed a business.

So I was searching for something, and it was a business, but then I accidentally clicked on the "Do you own this business?" button and now apparently I own it? I don't own any business and I'm afraid that it's probably illegal to claim another business? I accidentally claimed it and want to unclaim it before I get in any trouble, and I'm of the younger generation, too.

just remove it from your dashboard 

It makes the listing "unclaimed" again.

Hi Helmut,

 

And how I do that? I have the same problem, but I do not know how to remove it from my dashboard. Thanks.
