    Hello,

    Recently an unknown individual has been spamming my GMB profile with fake / negative reviews, we are talking about 60 in a 2-week time span.

    I have talked to google help center and all they tell me to do is report the reviews and wait 72h.

    Is there any other way to accelerate this process or to get them deleted?

    Thanks

    One solution in the meantime would be to make the page disapear.

    It's quite easy, go to GMB, set an open date that is over 3 months in the future, validate, the page has now disapeared

    Yes the more legit accounts you have flag it as spam the better

    Put out a call to send to family friends and workers to flag the spam reviews

    Try to use good accounts like Local guide accounts to spam the reviews. Secondly marked them as spam from your business page dashboard also. If you need help PM.

    Reply to them in an authoritative professional manner and ask them to provide details of their experience and call them up if they are not a customer, whilst having flagged them.
