Competitor Created Bogus Listing

Hi there! I have a tricky issue that we've been trying to deal with for over a year now. A competitor in the same town as my client established and verified a listing with my client's business' name that takes customers to the wrong place and links out to NASA's website (I suppose they think that's funny since my client's business is called The Space Place). Here's the bogus listing: https://goo.gl/maps/xdmymmSAZ9z . We've requested access to the listing a number of times and have been denied. Here's the correct listing that the owner was finally able to verify: https://goo.gl/maps/7mrFPpQjdhP2 . The business is working on getting some reviews to help outrank the bogus listing but for now, it is second to the incorrect listing. We've reported it to Google Maps a number of times as well but it's still live. Is there anything else we can do to try and have their listing removed?

1. Full business name :  THE SPACE PLACE MINI STORAGE
2. Current business address : 
59313 Blackstone Dr., Amite, LA 70422
3. Current telephone number : 985.748.6200
4. Google Maps URL : https://goo.gl/maps/7mrFPpQjdhP2
5. Website (if applicable) : https://www.spaceplacemini.com/self-storage

Just an update on this, in case anyone was interested- I reached out to support on Twitter to help with the issue and now it looks like both listings have been removed: http://prntscr.com/go21qk

 

At least we had a listing before, but now they're both gone.  Any thoughts?
