I would appreciate it if one of the Google Product Experts here would look at a case I just posted and escalate it. Thanks!

Here's the link to the case: Seven Fake Google Maps Locations for home care business - The Google Advertiser Community - 1848515

This one is interesting because the company that created the mapspam (seven fake Google Maps locations) only has one legitimate (state-licensed) location, and on their website they actually claim to have sixteen locations. Only one of them is legitimate.

As I say, I just posted a request for the seven fake Google Maps locations to be removed, but it's a shame that Google cannot do anything about the false claim on their website's locations page.

<sigh>
