@Tommy B can you list the address, phone number, and website for your business?

 

Also, can you clarify what you searched on Google that you are not seeing your listing for?

My business was taken over by an advertiser/ versifier, I reported it to Google, they agreed that there was a violation and they taken down my page instead of removing the impostor, I called Google over 20 times but there employees will do anything to help, they try to confuse the issue, they will have any attempt to remedy the issue taken as duplicate page, that's is my page was taken by another entity or person that also changed my business category from Insurance to Medical, it seems a a revenge and has no good attention, I am thinking that the only way to resolve this is to sue Google since there employees will not try to help, even if I just put the business name and address they( Google employees will take it down as duplicate or violation) I do not know what to do??
