    I don't think so because they send you a code to your address

    It's interesting that you brought that up. Last year, I was looking into a company that sold virtual office spaces that came with virtual addresses. However, I noticed that the company itself had a virtual address and appeared in Google Maps. The only reason I knew the address didn't really exist was because it was 5 miles away from where I lived. It wasn't even an empty lot; the "address" was wedged between 2 building that were next to each other.

    I'm assuming it worked at that time, although I'm unsure if it works now.

    Yes so they would send then code to the virtual address and then the company scans the letter and send it to you via email

    Yes, it will work if you take a real Virtual address. Google will send card and we will submit it.

    But you will be always at risk because even if Google got 1 complaint about your existence they will ban you. So, its better to take help of a friend in that city and request him to accept card.

    It did work and had some success.
    1.Do not add multiple businesses. 2. Risky If the category is in service industry/niche
    The catch here is, having strong citations!
