Someone has sold their Google My Business Listing...

I recently was offered to buy a Google Maps/Google My Business Listing, complete with 124 reviews from a company that has now closed down. I naturally turned this down as my company already has a good Google Maps/Google My Business visibility and we're working on this. One of my competitors has now bought the listing and moved it to a new location, along with the website and TripAdvisor listings for £18,000. 


Is this against the Google rules? Can you report this? What would you do?
