Outdated info / ownership of old My Business info not possible

12 Hay Hill is a business club - has been for over 3 years now - http://12hayhill.com/

 

T: 0207 952 6000

12 Hay Hill, Mayfair
London, W1J 8NR

 

G Maps understands this at one level - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/12+Hay+Hill/@51.509155,-0.143869,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x65886...

 

But according to Google Maps the address is still Marfin Popular Bank (an entity that ceased to exist a few years ago)  - http://www.news.cyprus-property-buyers.com/2013/05/09/default-judgement-against-cyprus-bank/id=00147...

 

A Google representative said we would need to get in touch with the person at Marfin Bank to arrange a transfer... a level of obtuseness I couldn't quite get my head around.

 

Now that Google appears to be re-engaging with MyBusiness (or whatever it's name is this year) I'm hooping we can solve the issue...

The bizarre thing about it is that Marfin Popular Bank doesn't have a Google My Business listing that I can find. It seems more like some leftovers. Normally you should be able to mark an existing location as permanently closed, but that's not the case here. I sent in a feedback request about it.

@Google
What's the point of announcing to fanfare that you're re-engaging with My Business; you elicit problems, disappointments, frustrations from your customers... and you respond with the same resolute silence you approached to the same problems before you re-engaged.

You've obviously got a bunch of ambitious, talented people working at My Business - surely, one of them can sort out this Marfin Map Muppetry without further ado - just do it; no excuses; reject abject failure - solve the problem; make Google proud.
