Hi

 

We have recently found the below unverified business using our website as their own

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Master+Locksmith/@53.4776496,-2.312412,12z/data=!4m15!1m12!4m11!...

 

What is the quickest and easiest way to report and remove the website url?

 

Thanks!

Hi Chris,
Since the page is unverified & unclaimed, it's likely a mistake based on some bad data and not an intentional move by the business.
Try contacting Google Support to see if they can help you with this. There don't seem to be any options on the screens at the moment for you to do it any other way.

Normally the suggest an option link Helmut has listed would give you an option, but I'm not seeing it on my maps now.
