Mississippi – Scam Alert

Renee T. Kent, Senior Client Services Representative recently received the below notification from the Mississippi Secretary of State:

The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office has been notified of a Compliance Mail Scam.

Newly formed businesses in Mississippi have received postcards in the mail from a private organization informing them of a “potential compliance violation”. They have asked you to call a toll free number where you are informed a certificate of good standing is needed. This statement is false. Further, in one instance, the individual stated he was with the Secretary of State’s Office. This is also false. A copy of the postcard is attached herein.

Please note, this postcard is not from the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office and no action is required by this Office.
