Someone verified my business.

How do I claim my business when someone else has verified it.

I know of no person (business or private) with a email ma........@gmail.com Every helpline I call or find for Google does not help. Whoever has claimed my business has removed information on maps and has the wrong hours.

Now I am getting calls from people trying to sell me my listing. They claim to be a partner with Google but won't deal with me since I am not the business owner. Please help.

Hi Jared @Nat Build Serv

 

Follow the steps under 'request access' on this page. Do not pay anything or deal with them to get the listing.

Hi Jared,

 

You went through the request access steps and didn't hear anything back, correct?

 

Now try going to https://business.google.com/add/info and then type the business name and select the correct suggested listing when it appears. When you hit continue does it allow you to verify it now or do you see the same message you saw before stating that someone else already verified the listing?

 

Note that you will need to attempt this from the same account you used when you went through the request access steps.

Ok got the same message I did when I first tried to verify last month. It allowed me to redo the request which it hasn't since I first did it.

The process did change a few weeks ago, likely after your initial attempt. Go ahead and request again (if you haven't already).

@TomW Is there a number I can call or is this still my best bet? I have been getting the most info from you.
