My business shows someone else's residential address

Hi... Google maps is currently showing three results for my business. I have claimed and verified two of them. The third location shows my business name and phone number but lists someones private residential address. It appears that the incorrect listing has been claimed by someone, so I can only suggest an edit. I've suggested edits with correct address, as well as one that says it never existed. I've had no response and the listing is still showing on Google Maps. How can I have this listing removed?

Hi @Danielle B

 

You can probably fix this yourself. 

Go to the 3rd listing on maps, suggest an edit > select "Place is permanently closed or has never existed", > "never existed" from the dropdown list.

Thanks for the response. I did try that a couple of weeks ago but it still appears on Google Maps. Do you know of any other way to try fixing this on my own?

Hi @Danielle B

 

Apologies for the delay in responding. Just discovered you had responded - this forum doesn't always tell us things it should!

 

Could you provide the following info so we can investigate further?

1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google Maps address
5. Website address (if applicable)
