Google Listing Hijacked

Hello,

 

I represent the business Agra Tandoori.

 

The business details are as follows:

1. Agra Tandoori 

2. 3790 Canada Way, Burnaby, BC V5G 1G4

3. (604) 430-1600

4. https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Agra+Tandoori+Restaurant/@49.254441,-123.0204435,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!...

5. http://www.agratandoori.ca/ is the official website

 

 

 

I claimed the business a while ago and rejected the claim from a company called DI develop. The owner and employees at the store know not to give any google code to them. 

 

Somehow the google listing in my account shows as a duplicate. 

 

How did they manage to do this? I need to get back the google listing. As I'm the one managing it for them.

Have you already (and if not why not) "request access"?

Yes, I have requested access. But they have invited me to become a communications manager as expected. What I find odd, is that all the employees at the location told me they did not give out any code. I know they created a duplicate listing but have no idea how they were able to get the google code.Thank you for your assistance.

HI @Harpreet G

 

If you can give me any good proof you are the real owner of the business we are talking here about I would escalate this ownership issue to Google.

 

(to let you better understand why I request such a proof about you as @Harpreet G being the real business owner: There are some kinds of hijacker pretending being the  business owners of certain restaurants and seeking help here  for just the only reason to steal listings. Since this happens not once only but ten or more times I'm now very vigilant and won't help here anyone unless I'm convinces he is the owner.)

 

Other TC's or contributos might have other principles.

But since about a  month this is how I deal such threads.

@Helmut Geissler  I can give you a business license but I don't want to post it in a public form. How can I send it to you?

 

Also, Once I regain control of the google listing, how can I stop them from making a verified duplicate listing without them having a google code. All employees at the restaurant understand not to give it out.
