Hi there,

1. Full business name : Unichem Remarkables Pharmacy
2. Current business address : 53/12 Hawthorne Drive, Frankton, Queenstown, 9300
3. Current telephone number : 03 442 2800
4. Google Maps URL
5. Website (if applicable):

Someone else has verified my business as their own without my permission or authority. I have tried following the normal process to have ownership transferred, but the current illegal 'owner' refuses to hand over ownership to me.  Google Help have not been able to assist me so far. Please can someone tell me what the procedure is in this kind of situation. Thank You

Hi @Clare A


In the email you get back from Google saying that request was denied, there is an appeal link in the email.


Have you appealed ?
