I see they haven't done anything about it that's a commercial location and there is no one there. They don't do business at that location it's not residential.

Tim, here is a video of a locksmith using a false location there is no locksmith. I went to this address 5793 S Prescott St Littleton, CO 80120 the people say there is no locksmith here Is the video please have them removed. I know you are a volunteer and so am I and I'm trying to help Google get rid of the scam locksmiths.

Hi @Michael P

 

Assuming the address on the listing is that address, I will ask the team to check.

Tim, if have you a storefront do have to receive a postcard to verify or just a picture with a sign with an address? I think the people are letting them use their address if they have to get a postcard.

Both cases you receive a postcard at location address. If Google is unsure of a storefront then they look for signage. If they can't find signage in streetview ( new business for eg ) then they reach out to businesses for additional confirmation.

 

But as I mentioned, I have asked them to check address being used.
