Type of a scam Business Email Compromise

As a small business owner in Colorado I file for a Periodic Compliance Report with the Colorado Secretary of State, the report is done electronically and cost $10 per year. This year I received a bill in the mail from WORKPLACE COMPLIANCE SERVICES, a soliciting agency registered in few states, demanding $95 for the report. The company is not associated with the government and it is easy to miss the small letters and fall for the scam. Doing an online search on it gives the sam answers - it is a scam. I hope not many people fall for it, but I see how easy can be to "pay them the bill".

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I have received two letters from a business called "Workplace Compliance Services" which includes Colorado Revised Statutes 7-90-301 and 7-90-501(1). The letter claims that if I do not file a periodic report of my entity (an LLC) by the specified date, I will be subject to fines and penalties. They demand a check in the amount of $95 be mailed to them in order for them to file my report (there is no information to fill out or information requested, just the check), lest I be subject to said fines and penalties. This is not a legitimate business, nor is this the process for reporting and LLC.

BEWARE BUSINESS OWNER FRIENDS!! If you receive a "2019 - ANNUAL REGISTRATION INSTRUCTION FORM" offering a paper renewal for your LLC, throw it away. An organization fronting as "Workplace Compliance Services" is mailing out these fraudulent forms. It's a total scam. The ONLY way to renew your biz is on the Secretary of State website. I received one and they look legit, wanting $135.

Workplace Compliance Services is just a scam.

The letter and return envelope they supply are very professional looking, they look just like government forms. But if you look closely you’ll see that they have nothing to do with the state (Colorado) or federal government. It’s just a scam, trying to get you to pay an $85 fee on top of a state government fee that costs only $10 and you can easily file online in ten minutes.

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.

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.

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.

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.
