*Consumer Comment: POSS IDENTITY THEFT SCAM

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

After incorporating my business and receiving my articles of incorporation from my attorney, I received a letter in the mail posing as the state of Florida stating that "you have one step left to complete your articles of incorporation."  It then requested payment for $45.72 and said that I would receive my certified articles of incorporation within 7-14 business days.

My attorney told me that the process was complete, that this is an entirely bogus scam trying to take advantage of newly incorporated businesses by making them think that they need to do this.

The letter provides only a return mailing address, no contact phone,fax, or e-mail address info is given.

DO NOT send this outfit any money!!!!

POSS IDENTITY THEFT SCAM

AUTHOR: Rich Cberry - (United States of America)

I also received this letter in the mail. It is completely fraudelent. What is even more concerning, is that there is no corporation "Florida Center of Corporations" filed with the State of Florida. This confirms that cashing your measley $45 check is the least of the con artist's concerns. They are most likely attempting to obtain your bank account info, since they already have your companu's tax id. If this happens to you, file a report with the City of Davie. I'm sure there Street Crimes Unit can pick this person up real quick. All they have to do is wait for him to check his mail.
