Six steps to find support from a human is not ideal. With a bit of luck Google Business Pages does an about turn, and returns the contact us options back to where they were.

Other option include using your AdWords account to contact support, then selecting Google My Business in the help options on the phone call, or trying the Google My Business help forum, but we may ask you to contact business support for certain issues anyway.
You will normally receive a phone call within 24hrs to your business phone number, to either confirm this has been verified or they need additional questions answered.
