Here’s a strange question.
I am posting it in the regional board because I think it’s a regional answer, but it’s not about dining. Please move if there is a better location.
Let’s say I notice there’s a restaurant listing itself for business, month after month, when it’s closed. And even creating new business listings at the same location. And even re-opening itself on Google and Yelp.
I think to myself “the only reason to do this would be fraud. Either they are applying for state grants as a small business, or a loan from a bank, or something”
I’d like to report these people, because it irks me no end that there should be a restaurant in this location but there isn’t! It seems their shenannigans are depriving me of a perfectly good restaurant to try, and probably taxpayer dollars too.
Where would I look up to see if they are getting loans or small business checks, so I can report they are not in business?
(I do believe strongly in “don’t snitch” but this is a rare exceptioin)
Thanks in advance!
