Similar issue, but a business that I manage was claimed and I attempted to get ownership but received an email that says


This listing is currently being managed by Hibu. If you are the owner of this business, please contact our support team at (888) 213-2098 or at

Hibu has hijacked this business owner and is making us contact them to regain access.  There is no telling how many they have claimed.  Is this illegal? I think it is.  What do I do about it.  How can I get my business owner to get the listing?

Hi Bill,


No, this should not be happening. All business owners should have full access to their listing. A third party is not allowed to own it and restrict your access. Please use this interactive web form to file a claim. Provide as much detail as possible to speed the process. 


Kind Regards,
