Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Letter is title Annual Registration Instruction Form. They are asking for $135 to register my business for the year, stating it includes state fees and their fee. This is the time of year to register businesses with the state so I almost fell for it but the fee is a lot higher than I paid the state last year. I looked up name of Workplace Compliance Services on internet which said it was a scam.

You can easily file information with the State on your own, which will cost you $10. This company charges you $75 to do it for you. Call their number (1-877-770-3555) to be removed from their mailing list.

There's not much I can say much else other than I received this in the mail thinking at first being legitimate. However, I noticed a few things that sounded really off. Like how they were immediately demanding 135 dollars and the lack of any website or email address. In addition, the letter stated that it wasn't a government agency or contracted by any so that ringed a lot of alarm bells. I looked up the company's name on Google and found many sites calling this company a scam. Found out that they were straight up scammers named Steve Fata and David Brake out of Lansing, Michigan.

I received a letter in the mail today addressed to my business from Workplace Compliance Services. The title of the form is "2019 - Annual Report Instruction Form (Georgia LLCs)". The form has our business ID number, address, name and address of the company registered agent and original start date of my company, which they must have gotten from our public records. This makes the form seem all the more official.

In recent past, I had filed my annual registration for my LLC at the ga.gov site which costed $50. Hence, was surprised to see a separate mail again for annual registration from and unknown agency “Workplace Compliance Services” with a local address. Upon further checks I soon realized it was a scam asking me to send $135 to the company address. At the same time, I saw written in the middle of the form, "Workplace Compliance Services is not a government agency and does not have a contract with any government agency to provide this service." I think this is to cover the company.

I have not paid anything to this company, never the less wanted to let you know that this scam is now in GA too having seen previous reports from other states.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I received an invoice in the mail to submit $175 for a 2019 annual report for an LLC business that I own. I almost sent them the check but noticed that they have a disclaimer that states that "they are not a goverment agency and do not have a contract to provide this service". On checking the internet several other warnings appear for the same company.

I received an invoice wanting me to verify information and register my business. They were asking for a check for $175. I had never heard of the company before and couldn't tell why I was paying them any money.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

The sent an invoice for our business to warn us that we need to file our annual report before May and that they charge $238.75 to file the annual report for us. The address on the invoice is for a UPS store, which is fishy and they are charging double then to file directly with Sunbiz.org. They are already on BBB for scam.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I received a letter with information about a yearly LLC fee, which is $100 dollars . It is paid by me every year, with no middleman required.

This fake invoice says to pay them directly, "Workplace Compliance Services" $185.00. They don't say they will even pay the fee.

I looked up the address where they want the money sent , 2755 Commercial St,SE Ste.101-260 Salem, OR 97302 and it's a UPS store in Salem, Oregon that has personnel mail boxes.

The legitimate LLC I send my payment to, has a different address and billing system altogether.

Early January 2019 I received through the mail a form titled "2019 - Periodic Report Instruction Form". At first I thought it was a reminder to file online, but upon closer inspection they are a company which uses government terminology to scare people into giving them a $75 dollar "processing fee," bringing the total money they are asking for to $85.

According to this website, Steven Fata and David Brake are behind this scam, and they have been scamming people for years, to the point where they have even been prosecuted:

The above article shows images of the same form which came to me. Upon looking up the names mentioned in the article, there are additional articles which talk about the above scammers.

While it was fairly easy to Google search and see it was a scam, the wording of the letter is tricky, so I would still like to report this to warn people that even after years of criminal activity, these people are still at it, targeting small businesses. The given address is a UPS store, which I assume is some sort of PO box for an individual to pick up money from.

Our company received a form in the mail which is made to look like an official State government form. The title of the form is "2019 - Annual Report Instruction Form (Connecticut L L Cs)". The form has our business ID number and original start date, which they must have gotten from our public records. This makes the form seem all the more official. My boss brought me the form to process but I immediately was confused because #1, the form states that we did not file the year before; which was inaccurate and #2 the cost of filing the annual report is $20 and they were billing for $130. Upon closer look, I saw written in the middle of the form, "Workplace Compliance Services is not a government agency and does not have a contract with any government agency to provide this service." I suspect that keeps the company safe from legal issues but it is absolutely clear that the form is designed to fool companies into believing it is sent from the State and that it is a bill for past/overdue annual report filings. Shame on them.

this company offers to assist in filing your $10.00 business periodic report with the Colorado Sec of State for a fee of $75.00. they do say they are not a go0vernment agency (in much smaller font size), but include official Co government statutes on the official-looking form.

don't be scammed! every registered business order gets a notification form the CO SoS, via email and/or regular mail, to file their periodic reports.

I was sent an Annual Report Instruction form stating that I had not paid my State of CT Annual Report and needed to send a check for $110.

Type of a scam Phishing

We rec'd 2 letters for 2 CT biz entities we own. WCS specifically stated that both companies were non compliant with SOS filings for over a year. For a mere $110, they would be happy to get us back in compliance. Here's the deal. The annual filing fee is $10. IF we were late, we would be charged a late fee on top of that. And WCS is taking a $100 to file your docs (that you can do very easily yourself!). So if you are already complaint, they make $110 for themselves by doing nothing! FRAUD! We were compliant (both filed in Aug 2018), so WCS deliberately lied in their letter. Again FRAUD!

Today I received a fake invoice from this company stating I was behind in filing my LLC's Annual Report. I knew that wasn't true because I keep a copy in a folder in my email. I also logged into my account via my state's (CT) Secretary of State's Office and saw that it isn't due for a couple of months. I googled the phone number on the "invoice" and already saw reports on the BBB matching the same business, warning business owners in Louisana of this scam. This is obviously a scam because the Secretary of State's Office wouldn't employ a third-party service to collect filings. This piece of mail is disturbing because it contains some personal information.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Received in mail after opening up a business account at my bank two weeks ago requesting immediate payment of $85.00 to file information about our LLC to the State of Colorado. If I did not respond before 1/11/19 I may be at risk for penalties and fines with the State of Colorado.

The Notice date was 12/4/18 which caught my eye since I just received the letter on 1/2/2019. I immediately wondered if in fact this was questionable and looked up the name and phone number of the company. Sure enough there had been other reports of fraudulent concern. I don't want anyone to be taken advantage of through this type of action. Fortunately, I have learned the hard way and don't want anyone else to be manipulated.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a letter in the mail today addressed to my business from Workplace Compliance Services, 1022 Boulevard #248, West Hartford, CT, 06119, stating that I had not filed my Annual Filing Report to the State of CT in over a year and that if I did not file, my business "may be in default and administratively dissolved". This business was asking me to send them a check for $110. My annual filing fee with the State is $20, so this vendor is making $90 if I were to send in the check. The letter had my business ID#, name, address, and looked "official" with a barcode and a please respond by date. The letter was titled 2019--Annual Report Instruction Form. It also listed a CT General Statute that applies to LLC annual filings. Down the page it states that Workplace Compliance Services is not a government agency and does not have a contract with a government agency to provide the service. This mailing does not clearly state that it is a third party service that you are paying for to file your annual report (at the cost of $110--$20 for the filing and their $90 fee). This letter is deceptive and if a person is not aware of what it really is, potentially may pay this money without knowing what is really happening. If you are wondering if you may have missed your annual filing, it is easy to check on the State of CT Concord site, which lists the date your annual filing is really due. I am reporting this because this company is using deceptive practices.

While there is a notice that they are not a government agency, the form, sent through the US mail uses official sounding language - clearly a scare tactic. I've filed our company's periodic reports online for years, and even I had to look into this. It is a breeze to file online and costs only $10 to renew a business license. Workplace Compliance Services charges $85 - $10 for the filing fee, and $75 for their processing fee. BE FORWARNED. DO NOT FILE YOUR PERIOD REPORT THROUGH THEM.

If you don't know how to do it yourself, follow these instructions. I give them point-by-point. Go on www.co.sos.state.co.us, click on Business, Trademarks, Trade Names. Then click File a Business Document. Then click File a Form for an Existing Record. Enter your company name, and click search. You should see a company record pop up. Click the ID Number. A confirmation screen will pop up - click Confirm.Then click File a Form and follow the instructions. Once you go through this process, be sure to get your email in the Colorado SOS system because then they will send you an email when a periodic report is due. You click the link in their email, and it leads you strait to the company profile where you can easily file a form.

Sent an official looking letter with our business information, likely pulled from the Secretary of State's website. $100 in fees to report our company information, which should be done on the Business4WV website. Phone number shows it to target many companies in many states.
