Found this listing in the temp jobs listings on craigslist, 

http://coventry.craigslist.co.uk/dmg/5625309567.html

it appears to be offering money for people to accept Google Business verification postcards...

pretty sure this is a way for people to claim businesses....and can't find a way to directly tell Google

I followed through with one of these to the point of receiving the postcard just to see what the deal was. How do I contact a human being at Google to give them this guy's "business" information and my address at which he was trying to establish it?
