Old Google Places Listing controlled by someone else is causing my business harm

I have verified a new listing by both phone and by post and it was marked as a duplicate.  I was told to wait 7 days while ownership was requested from whoever controlled the original listing.  I waited a further 5 days because I was told to in a subsequent email.  When I replied to the email asking for the old listing to be removed I got a canned reply to go through verification all over again.  The opening times are wrong for the Google Places listing, completely wrong and I am losing business income because Google is displaying wrong information.  Please could someone help me.

Since the existent listing "Badshah Palace Wedding Venue Banqueting and Restaurant" is a verified listing it was a mistake trying to create a new one as you abviously tried with 

https://plus.google.com/+BadshahPalaceBirmingham

It needs removed from your dashbaord.

Then you can and should apply the procedure "Someone else verified my business"
