Hi @Timbo M,

It is not your personal Google account that is going to be deleted when you remove a business listing for the GMB dashboard, it is referring to a ghost account associated with the business listing. The wording used by Google to explain that leaves a lot to be desired.

Go ahead and delete the business listing from your GMB dashboard if you no longer wish to manage it.

Hi Timbo,

 

I concur with Treebles. Please use this information to expand on all of this. 

 

Kind Regards,
