I Manage Stacy's Appliances at 184 Davis street Sarnia, Ontario N7T 1A7

 

Someone is using our business address with a fake name and phone # to scam customers.

There is 2 My Business ads from this person. One is under Appliance Doctor, the other is under Jacks reconditioned Appliances.  Besides the obvious fraud, I am most concerned about the reviews by a couple people they have lied to which potential future customers of mine are reading and thinking that they are talking about us. I have tried to fix this problem but haven't made much headway. Can u have his ads removed please!? Or at least the reviews? Or asign the assount to me? Thank you!

Have you contacted the RCMP's Canadian Anti-fraud Centre (CAFC) @ 1-888-495-8501? Have you contacted local law enforcement? Doesn't look like you've left a review for these businesses either.

In addition to Phil's comments, have you also marked the business as spam on Maps? If not I recommend doing that.
