Data discrepancy handling

If you maintain millions of business listings, there is a good chance to overlook a certain change in business, a closure of a business or a new business. We update our directory with information directly from the local telphone companies regularly. However, if you noticed a change for a listing or missing a business, we very much appreciate your feedback!
