We have a law client who is insistent we don't send any more GMB verification postcards to their office. They have two listings for the same location, but one listing has an extra partner and the other doesn't. Google refused to merge them, because they kept thinking they were different businesses. We marked the one we don't want as permanently closed, but that caused Google to not allow any of our edits and wanted reverification. I've reported the listing on other accounts, but so far it hasn't worked. I know it seems silly, but is there a way to get this listing taken down without reverifying?
