Someone claimed a business on my behalf that I have nothing to do with, help!

Someone claimed a business on my behalf that I literally have nothing to do with. Nothing was verified as I don't own or have anything to do with it. Should I just leave it since it's not verified? I'd rather just myself completely removed from this but if it's not possible, then so be it. Let me know please as it wasn't the funniest 'prank' to have pulled on.

This reads very confusing

 

A business can't be "not verified" but and claimed by someone else at the same time.

@Peter G

 

Please be more concrete if expecting a concrete help here:

Please include the following with your question:
1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google+ or GoogleMyBusiness URL
