We at Medina Law Group have recently come across a new scam. But this time, the scam came by mail. Apparently, scammers are now monitoring new corporate filings with the Florida Secretary of State.
After creating a new entity for a client of ours, we received a letter from the “Corporations Filing Service” (CFS). The letter was fashioned after an annual corporate minutes statement, and it requested that the recipient provide the information of all company shareholders, directors and officers.
The letter additionally prompts the recipient to pay a $155.00 fee for the preparation of corporate consent records.
As always, we encourage the readers of this blog to disseminate this information to anyone who might be making corporate filings with the Florida Secretary of State.
