To be honest, i don't think there's a single one of us out there who hasn't experienced this exact scenario, be it with your map, or wrong listing, description or whatever but i've never heard of BDC removing a review for any reason.
I've got one that says my place is a scam and i am a conman, all because they thought they had booked a hotel but arrived at my 'bed and breakfast' which unfortunately had no bar or jazz band! To make matters worse, 5 people have now said that they found it 'helpful'! I tried to get this removed but got absolutely stonewalled by BDC, they wouldn't even remove the text but leave the score in place even though, in my mind, it's insulting. It annoys me all the time as you've got no realistic chance of getting back your previous score once you've got a 4/10.
My advice would be to let it go, it's going to drive you crazy, you'll get nowhere so deep breath and take some comfort in the knowledge that we've all got one or two of these, and if you haven't got one now, you'll get one in the future.
It does suck but as long as the rest of them are ok all your guests will see that it was just a one off and pay it no attention ... your personal pride however is another thing though,
I'm not sure if the dates are the same for every country but here in the Netherlands we are always paid by, or on, the 15th of the month. My payment just came in this afternoon so yours shouldn't be too far away. Don't panic, although i've had a few issues here and there with BDC, i've never had a problem getting paid.
