    Craziest category list I've ever seen...

    Check this out. This business has 20 categories. http://easycaptures.com/fs/uploaded/822/9839425332.png

    How did they get so many? The listing has been claimed and edited by 4 different users? Interesting that some of them are in French. Maybe the multi-language thing lets them select more categories.

    Wild! Yes, I think it is or has been claimed in multiple accounts over time.

    I'm with Colan. Before even seeing it I said to myself, its claimed in multiple dashboards. Too many cats is the most obvious symptom of a hidden merged dupe. (If it's 4 accounts it's either super sloppy or maybe intentional.)

    Here is the live edit details page with all the cats: Google Map Maker

    Yeah, multiple claimed accounts is the only explanation. I think in Canada there it's possible to get a second listing in French, but I haven't ever looking into it.
