    Nevada Scam - Business ComplianceRENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt is warning Nevadans of a new business compliance postcard scam reported by several Nevada business owners.

    According to a release, businesses may receive a postcard from a company called ‘Business Compliance Division’ prompting them to call immediately to avoid potential fees and penalties.

    Those who call the postcard are directed to pay a fee of $70 to apply for a certificate of existence. They are asked to provide credit card information, or are given instructions to send money to an office allegedly affiliated with a state attorney general’s office.

    The Office of the Nevada Attorney General has no affiliation with the “Business Compliance Division” and the state of Nevada does not require a certificate of existence for Nevada corporations.

    To minimize the risk of falling victim to this scam, consumers can take the following steps:

    Consumers are always encouraged to exercise caution before providing any information or payment to an entity that makes misleading claims or requests.

    Before making any monetary transactions or providing personal information, consumers are encouraged to ask what services will be provided, and what their corporate and payment information will be used for.

    Nevadans who receive the fraudulent postcard should not call the number indicated.

    Nevada businesses owners pursuing businesses in another state could be required to obtain a certificate of good standing from the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office for $50.

    Business owners looking for more information about business compliance should contact the Nevada Secretary of State’s Commercial Recordings Division at 775-684-5708.

    Those who believe they have been victimized by this scam can file a complaint with the Office of Nevada Consumer Affairs here.

    Sometimes business like this are usually using the government name in order to let their propaganda looks legit and scam others. They also tend to distribute postcards and some printed materials many days before they able to fulfill their plan, in this case they able to disguise whatever plans they have. So always be aware, many scams like this are rampant in almost everywhere.
