Unclaim a business listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I accidentally claimed a business.  :-(  I just clicked on it to see what would happen not thinking that there was only one step to do that.  I figured there would a confirmation step.  Is there a way to unclaim it?

ok @Daree S

 

Its this page plus.google.com/113727647124297502481/about and its not yet claimed.

In that case deleting the page from your dashboard means deleting it completely

 

The only other option would be to transfer the ownership of the page to any other dashboard.

You then you can delete it from your own dashboard (it remains in the dashboard of the new owner)

the claiming process is not done through just clicking a link;

unless you entered the PIN the page isn't claimed by you.
Just delete the page in question from your dashboard.

Those instructions look like they actually delete the page. I just want to remove it from my Dashboard not delete the page. Thoughts?
