Address & Business Name Changed

A former employee took over a business listing that is owned by PC Geeks. The Google listing address was changed to direct traffic to his new address. Is it possible to undo this change if he has claimed the listing?

If he claimed the listing, the owner needs to start the process of getting the ownership transferred back to them.

Start the process, then speak to Business support:

IIf you get stuck during the process, reply with the support ticket.

I was hoping there was another option. I don't think this guy is going to give up a listing that he purposely hijacked. I will give it a shot. Thanks!

Hi

You need to start the process, wait 7 days, then contact business support.

I have been assigned the task to changing an address at our various business sites. I entered what was necessary to receive a postcard that would allow me to do so. I have not received the postcare for permission. Please email jstout@thecounselingcenter.org or gcollinsworth@thecounselingcenter.org. Thank you very much.
