Client Alert – Scammers targeting California Business Entities.

JULY 11, 2014
The Secretary of State of California has sent out a consumer alert to warn California businesses about a scam operation. If you receive a letter requesting that you submit $49.50 along with a form, etc. to “California State Corporations”, to receive a Certificate of Status for your business entity, do not respond. This is not an official government document. It is from a private enterprise attempting to extract unnecessary fees from unsuspecting business owners.
