I was curious if there a service (seems like a great business opportunity) that will fight spam? Basically there are thousands of fake listings and it would be great to know we could fight back using a service to do it for us.

Does this exist? if so, can you share some providers.

TIA

Two of the brightest Local Seo people on one thread, perfect place to ask this question.

What is the best way to address competitors buying fake reviews for their GMB. Location spam won't work because he has a legitimate commercial address. But he is buying or getting about 20 fake reviews a month, when the average for the industry is only 3 per month in our market. Suggestions?

The best channel to report reviews is GMB on Twitter. Compile a Google doc with supporting evidence, adjust the document permissions so anyone can edit it and DM it to GMB.

They are super backed up right now so action will be delayed.
