Someone is harassing me by attempting to list my home as a small business

Someone is attempting to list my house as a public business. This person has been consistently harassing me and I do not want them listing my home as a public place. The verification code arrived under their name so I know that this is part of a constant harassment attempt. How to I report this? and not allow them to have access?

 

Thank you

Arielle- As much as I know, there isn't much you can do.  You said that you had received a verification code in the mail, as long as you have it, it can't be verified, which to me seems like it is half the battle.  Just an idea- if the person has a unique name, maybe you could find them on Google+ and then report them.  I hope you the best of luck in your endeavor.

Hey @Arielle B

 

Nate is correct - they can't do anything without the verification code.  I would suggest messaging GMB via Twitter or Facebook and sending them a picture of the postcard you got so they can ban the account that created it.  You can private message there so you won't have to list it publicly.
