Google Maps Hijacking Getting Out of Control?

A Google Places Help thread reports some business owners complaining that their business listings on Google Maps continually gets hijacked by competitors. One person said, "on almost a daily basis my client's listing gets hijacked."

Google Maps hijacking is nothing new, we saw it back in 2007 and 2008, but it does routinely happen. In fact, Google is aware of it and is looking for a way to prevent it from happening.

Linda from the Google Maps team said in the thread:

Sorry for the trouble you're experiencing. Thanks for notifying us of this issue. We are looking into this.

For others that are experiencing similar issues, please post your business listings URL from Google Maps.
