How do you find out who owns a business location on Google Maps

We need to find out who has ownership of Snyder Iron & Metal (in Google My Business) located in Snyder, Texas.  It appears that whoever has ownership of that location does not work for Snyder Iron & Metal.

Google gives us the below info about the mentioned listing:

 

This listing has already been verified by fo…@gmail.com. If you own this email address, please follow the Account Recovery help guide. If you still want to add this listing to your account, you can request admin rights from the current verified user. This may take some time.

I tried sending a request to that fo...@gmail.com account.  I refused the request because my gmail address was "unknown".  I got the reply from a generic GMB non-reply address.  So I still can't tell who owns the location.  No one in our group has a gmail account that starts with fo.

My response should say I was refused my request instead of "I refused my request..."

I'm afraid 

 

my answer was the only valid one on your question "How do you find out who owns a business location on Google Maps"

 

Google will never disclose the identity of the owner of a listing  

 

So far so good or bad.

An other question would be "How do you I get the control over a listing verifid and manage by someone else?"

 

My answer to such a question would be:


Apply this procedure

Thank you for the quick reply.  Looks like this is going to be a long drawn out exercise... :( ...
