Ad.IQ Stole my business listing..

Greetings all! This past summer I used a service called Ad.IQ in hopes of helping me gain new clients for my lawn care company. After 4 months, I canceled the service, they never got me 1 single customer, but they did get me regularly scheduled spam calls, usually other "companies" like theirs, trying to sell me stuff.


Anyhow, they initially handled my "Google My Business" account, set it up and verified it for me, how nice of them? Since I've canceled my service with them, they will no longer respond to any of my emails. They did at first, and made me a "Communications Manager" - this title holds zero administrative value. I need to be able to change my category from Landscaper to Lawn Care Service - for one (they didn't even get that part right), and be able to add a few more, when and if need be.


How do I go about gaining "Owner" control over MY business listing? Or do I need to verify another (if so, can I even have TWO verified listings of the SAME business in the same area?)


I've searched Google.. I wish there was a PERSON I could speak to that could simply take them off of my listing and add me, but apparently - there isn't.


What - do - I - do?? Lol
