    Heres the deal...

    I got a Google places ad that was definately edited by someone else... it shows someone elses email... the services changed from my main category to something entirely different and way off topic... "Liquid Vinyl" What the Fu%k?

    It is a verified account... Is this a black hat trick?

    What do the bricks and mortar address/telephone details say?

    Places are really for bricks and mortar businesses. It is possible to hi jack an account but google will want proof it is that persons business. They usually get around it by posting a card with a unique pin number to the address.

    So long as you have a proper bricks and mortar address report a problem and try and reclaim the listing. Google will want to send a postcard to the address mentioned in the listing.

    Look here for detailed help on places....
