In our July 23 update, we cautioned about official looking notices that appear to come from state agencies, but, in fact, are solicitations from private companies. Recently, a client sent us another of these solicitations that looks very similar to a California Annual Report Form and purports to be from "California Corporate Services," which actually has no affiliation with the State of California. It requests an "Annual Fee" of $150.00. It contains, in the body of the form, the statement that it has not been approved or endorsed by a government agency. But the disclaimer is easy to miss. Companies should review these solicitations carefully before responding and sending their money. In addition, recently the Corporation Service Company alerted its customers to similar deceptive solicitations purporting to be from the states of Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Texas.
