Google needs to address the issue with bulling and bad business practices by other Google business. There is no verification of the rating whether or not it is true. Last month Mainstreet General Store one of my competitors place a negative review and a 1 rating on my google business site. These owners have a history of doing this. Just look at their reviews. If they can't play fair then they should be restricted. If you continue to allow this practice then their is no reason my company should be apart of Google business.
I have sent several issues regarding this and no response

Hi @Barking B
Many of us feel the same way and is a known issue.
If its any consolation, they say they are looking solutions.
