Claimed business in error

Guys,

 

I am trying to help my friend claim his business, I inadvertently pressed the CLAIM as owner button, and the system has allocated his business to my account.

 

As soon as I realised this mistake I went no further IE I never requested the verification postcard. I ended up going round in circles browsing the forums, but couldn't see a solution and didn't want to start following any instructions as I was unsure which was the correct route. How do I reverse this

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Stu

Hey Stuart,

 

Not to worry. If you did not request the verification postcard you almost certainly do not have ownership of the business.You may still see the listing in your account until you verify it, but it won't stop anyone else from verifying it first and taking ownership.

 

If my response was helpful please mark my answer as 'Best Answer' Thanks!

@Stuart B

 

Neither of you should have to do anything. The business is already claimed, most likely by him. Does he have access to the listing?

Sorry Dan I realised I had emailed a reply rather than do it on the board here, no I depressed the claim button, the business is now shown on my list, so the question is how does he claim it or can I transfer it to him.

I'm unsure if he has access to the listing, I wouldn't think so as I claimed it, but never asked for the postcard to be sent

Hi Stuart,

 

Any luck with this. I have done the same in error. 

 

My Google profile now shows this business instead of my private information. 

 

How do we ensure that the owner is able to claim this business?
