Scam Alert for Businesses
(Nov. 5, 2013) LITTLE ROCK--Many of our BCS customers received a mailing from an entity calling itself “Compliance Services” requesting a fee of $125 to prepare documents concerning records or minutes of an Annual Meeting of Shareholders or Board of Directors. Despite the implications in the letter, this mailing or notice is NOT from the Arkansas Secretary of State and is neither required nor approved by this Office. The Arkansas Secretary of State does not have a current and valid registration for a business named “Compliance Services” at the Post Office Box address in Fayetteville, AR.
“Arkansas law does not allow a business to have someone else prepare minutes for an Annual Meeting that did not occur. Please contact your own corporate attorney or your accountant for the legal requirements for your type of business entity.” Martin said. “We are gathering information to turn this over to the Attorney General’s office.”
Should you have any additional questions about this mailing from “Compliance Services” please contact the Business and Commercial Services Division at 501 682 3409.
