How do I report a business for threatening me on google reviews?
2
I left a 1 star review for a business on google. I didnt even post a worded review because I was very upset and wanted to be measured in my criticism. I also filed a report on this business earlier today because I had seen them doxx people on their reviews.  Well I just checked my email and saw this response to my review. Clearly this is a threat, its really creepy, and does not leave me feeling remotely safe reviewing on Google and frankly if this is allowed on the platform I will not continue using it. This must be a violation of the Terms of Service. I have no way of contacting a Google Rep directly. Guardian Training Center in Warminster, PA is threatening myself and others.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, there is no option at the moment to flag a reply to a review.

But, I will go ahead and move this to the Google Business Profile forum, as I believe the business owner might be in violation of guidelines for replying like this.

Thank you.

Hi Keyserholiday,

Could you please elaborate? Not sure I understand, the reply to the review seems to be an obvious threat.

Leaving a rating, without a review on the other hand is permitted from what I’m aware.

Thanks.

I don’t perceive it as a threat and more as a juvenile reply.   Based on my knowledge of Google and takedowns, I don’t see the reply being removed. The reply does more harm to the business based on all of readings of reviews and review replies. The business comes off as a real jerk and that would turn more people away from them.
 
Thanks Keyserholiday for the detailed response.
 
LHask94, I'm sorry we couldn't assist you on these product forums.
 
Personally, if a business replies to me like this, I would report them to the police and/or seek legal action against the business, but that's just me. I'm not sure, but your jurisdiction probably has laws that disallow this behaviour.
