I really need help. This issue is on going and I feel I am caught in a feedback loop with this company. This all started when I registered for a GoDaddy Account that had some sort of Google Business integration in the control panel. Don't ask me to describe it in detail. I only know that it is part of every GoDaddy web hosting account. I tried to register my business through this GoDaddy control panel. I am not a computer expert, I am a Notary Public. I hire someone to fix my computer stuff. I would be willing to pay someone at Google to fix this since it is at least partially with their software. Anyway, I found that I could not set the business hours and so I attempted to register my business with Google My Business on my own. This resulted in some kind of ownership conflict with my Google Maps listing. Again, I have not idea why since I always use the same addressing parameters for my business. Anyway, I emailed Google and someone called my and told me to request a code by mail and enter it or wait 8 days and I could takeover the account. I have gone through this process Four "4" times and I can show you every one of the letters I got. That didn't make me own my own account. After  4 attempts and 4 letters, you just keep saying the same thing. Help, I am loosing customers. I live in the small town of Coronado, California and there is not much business here to begin with. I would be willing to pay! I would be willing to pay! I would be willing to pay! Help Google, not kidding.
