An entrepreneur friend of mine did that once. Put in his contact number into the details of a much bigger business. They're one of those "too big to fail" businesses so they didn't care. He still gets leads off this gimmick!

If you verified your business on Google My Business then no one (your competitor) can edit you business details. You need to verify your business.

Yeah, you are right. Verify your business address so that no one can edit and Even if anyone edit the business information, the authorized person will receive the email from Google regarding the edit.
