Google listing hijacked by Beyond Menu

Hi @Helmut Geissler & @Tim Capper

 

I am another victim of Beyond Menu. They took over my Google Listing and they are not willing to transfer the ownership. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

 

I am the owner of 'Sneha Indian Cuisine' and I requested Transfer of Ownership. They would not budge. I even sent documents to Google (State of Maryland pdf & my Drivers License) verifying my legal business ownership but Google gives me the same response: Request access from the current owner.

 

I dont know about other states but for the State of Maryland, anyone can verify the ownership of a business. I sent a pdf of this and also instructions as to how to check.

 

____________________________________________________

You can verify my business ownership by following the simple steps below (I think most states might have something like this):

Go to: https://egov.maryland.gov/BusinessExpress/EntitySearch
'Search By' drop down: Select 'Business Name'
Business Name text box will appear: Enter 'Sneha Indian Cuisine' (Make sure there are no spelling mistakes)
Click the Search button

____________________________________________________

 

Currently I dont have any kind of access to my Google Listing. The listing that I used to have now says that its a duplicate.

 

1. Full business name: Sneha Indian Cuisine
2. Current business address: 6600 Baltimore National Pike, Suite H, Catonsville MD 21228
3. Current telephone number: 443 251 2187 (Cell: 214 995 7015)
4. Google Maps URL: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sneha+Indian+Cuisine/@39.288174,-76.7663457,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m12...
5. Website (if applicable): www.SnehaIndianCuisine.com

Hi @Ravi K

 

Brilliant !.

I also had them remove the Beyond Menu website back to your own website.
