Rarick & Associates Alert: Beware of Corporate Scam

This post was written by Phillip B. Rarick, Esq.

If you get a letter or an email from a company called COMPLIANCE SERVICES  (not to be confused with the Florida corporation, Compliance Services, Inc.) asking for a fee of $125 for corporate minutes  BEWARE.  Minutes are not required to be posted with the  Florida Secretary of State.  Rather, they should be prepared and filed in your corporate book.

This company is trying to masquerade as a state government entity and scam you out of $125.  These messages should not be confused with notices from the Florida State Division of Corporations reminding each business entity to file its 2011 Annual Report.
