Corporate Business Filings Scam

By Michael Banner - Aug 14, 2013      Comments     

Another scam is making the rounds, which was brought to our attention yesterday.  A private company calling itself Corporate Business Filings is sending out fake governmental forms to California Corporations and Limited Liability Companies telling them they must remit $225 or face penalties or even suspension by the state.

It is another fraudulent attempt to take advantage of small business owners' lack of time by getting them to believe they must send the state more money, when in fact this company is only offering an overpriced service (although I have doubts they will follow through with the service) to file the state's Statement of Information for $200 (plus presumably the state's fee of $25).

We are calling it a scam and you should avoid this company and notices like this at all time.  Bottom line with this, and any notice you receive, is read it!
