Hi,

 

I'm working on behalf of a client who has a duplicate Google+ profile, one of which I'd like to get removed:

Company details:

Tel +44(0)1938 570426
Fax +44(0)1938 570070

 

Cae Post Ltd
Resource Recovery Centre
Criggion Lane
Trewern
Welshpool
SY21 8EE

 

 

Here is the main profile: https://plus.google.com/103220633896710748272

Here is the duplicate: https://plus.google.com/106438444788100753345

 

If you could let me know the steps that I need to take that would be great, thank you.

@Andreas A

 

one of it is a  verified local listing (https://plus.google.com/103220633896710748272)

the other one is a yet unverified listing.

Are both managage by you in the same dashbaord of  GoogleMyBusiness?

Hi @Helmut Geissler,

Thanks for the prompt response and the info. Unfortunately I don't currently have direct access to any Google accounts (and therefore no dashboard access) linked to this. I've received some suggestions via the official Google+ Help community. I've followed and sent the unverified listing (duplicate we wish to remove) a post, by making a collection viewable only to them and adding in a message to contact myself and/or the agency I'm working with on behalf of the organisation to see if it triggers any emails linked to this account, and I've asked that it is checked to see if anyone receives any email notifications, to verify ownership (ie. who owns the account linked to this profile)

The other possibility that was suggested was reporting an impersonation, so I've mentioned this possible solution to the agency I'm working with to see if they wish to obtain and provide the relevant proof to verify I am acting as an official representative of the organisation (and passed on the link so they can fill out the report form themselves if they wish)

you can get control over the verified listing only and only if using the procedure Someone else verified my business

 

But this wont help to get the other page deleted or remoeved or transfered in your dashboard.

Othrwise nobody will find it on Maps or GoogleSearch.

I therefore wouldn't care about
