Someone keeps changing our business name. The other owners say it wasn’t them. How can I find out who is doing it?

Hi Tina,

 

It appears it's being submitted via other users aka Local Guides.  You mention yourself on your website many times as BC Sands so adding landscaping & building supplies is your real business name I would change that and if need be submit a business license to Google proving that is your correct name.

Is there a way to stop the Local Guides being able to change a business name? It's doing my head in having to revert my 3x business names every month because some "helpful" user has decided they know our business better than we do >_<
