This is a serious issue. As described in this section “What to Do If Someone Has Requested Ownership of the Google Business Profile?“, any user can request ownership of a profile. Some of us receive such requests once a week at least.
However, it is easy to deny by clicking on the “Review request” button in GBP’s email.
But there is an issue, when clicking on the ‘Review Request’ button to deny it, you are sent to a strange website (Actually this website is Google’s intranet website). It is not affecting every request, but quite a few users are reporting this issue, so it is widespread.
For updated information on Google Business Profile issues, solutions and notifications when issues are resolved you need access to GBPedia Guide.
