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.
If you have had communication with this organization, please contact the Business Services Division of the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office at 601-359-1633.
