Business fee scam grows

By Oregon Better Business Bureau

Own or work at a small business? Be on the look out for a scam that attempts to fool businesses into paying fees to stay in compliance with government regulations that don’t even exist.

How the Scam Works:

You receive an official-looking letter in the mail. It’s labeled something like “Notice of Potential Compliance Violation,” “Certificate of Good Standing Request Form” or “Annual Letter Solicitation Form,” and it looks like a document from the state or provincial government. The mailing informs you that, in order to be in compliance with a regulation, you need to fill out the attached form and send it back with $125.
