Competitor made fake google map location to steal my customers

Hello, my business is Blood Money Tattoo llc. Located at 2955 Highway 51 South, Hernando MS, 38632. The url is   https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-verizon&ei=DdzGWIDhH4HtmAGK6ojIBQ&q=blood+money+tatt...        Another business has set a fake location for my business next to theirs. So, for the past 2 weeks all of my customers have been sent to their shop when searching for mine. I couldn't understand why we were losing business and this other business had a influx of business. Then a customer told me that google was saying my business was in a neighboring town. a block away from my competitors shop. I had been running ads and paying for my customers to go to the wrong location, subsequently going to the closest tattoo shop when they couldn't find mine. Can I find out who did this and press charges?

Thanks

   ,Jay

this seems to be a link to your own business: https://goo.gl/maps/4YUyFshcuE22

 

Please provide a link to the "fake" business.
