Google maps fake ads and locations are destroying small business and deceaving consumers

Fake locations on Google maps as well as dishonest advertisements are destroying small business and deceiving consumers on a global scale. We must establish a verification process before adding listings to Google Maps for business locations. It is currently far too easy to add a location to google maps. A very simple solution to prove occupancy would be, to submit a Business License, a Tax ID and a copy of the owner's driver's license. I have found hundreds of fake flower shops in the past few weeks alone. I have found these fake listings from coast to coast and around the world. The fake business listings on Google maps are not unique to Flower shops. There are phony listing across every industry. This is a very common sense approach to an extremely common problem. When someone searches for example, for a "plumber in Queens, NY" and they are directed to a call center who brokers plumbers, it is not ok. The local Plumber just lost a job, the consumer overpaid for poor service as the broker found the cheapest plumber he could. Verifying these listings will also protect the business owners from getting their listings hijacked and manipulated by unauthorized third parties like my listing was. Business owners pay far too much rent every month to deserve a listing on google maps. It is a shame that anyone can post a business location anywhere they want in less than 5 minutes as long as they have a phone number. Here is a video that will show you just how big of a problem this is. Check out these youtube videos part 1 and part 2 deceptive marketing practices.
