Hi,

I am writing for my family business which have been operating for 5 years now. I went to search for my business address and found that someone else is using my business address and name along with their phone number and website. This is the business that is using my name https://plus.google.com/107498331097034033741

I have requested for a Pin to be sent. However the address where the pin is to be sent is wrong. Below is the full details for my business

1. Full business name  - LNE Elevator Sdn. Bhd.
2. Current business address - 12, Jalan USJ 4/6b, Usj 4, 47600 Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

3. Official Website - lneelevator.com.my

 

Please advise

Hanqi

afaik the listing you provided the link https://plus.google.com/107498331097034033741 for it is a verified local listing.

You can't jsut claim this listing (regardless the address is correct or not)

The only optionto get contral over the listing would be applying this procedure: 

Btw: have you already created and verified  for your correct address a GMB lsiting?
