As many and many people are joining for local guides program , i have noticed a few new accounts are being used for spamming. Which means some local guides are misusing the facility to add photos and videos (other details too) by posting irrelevant ads of their interest. This will mislead people and also creates a negative impact on visitors. So something should be done at the earliest in order to discourage these kind of activities on google maps by local guides. Please do vote and let google take good steps regarding this issue.
