*I actually posted the warning Friday.  When my mail came that day, I had a letter from C.F.S.  As Secretary Watson says, the letter looks very legitimate! —very easy to think it is the real thing.

I have taken a picture of the envelope…stuff is even filled out on the LLC information.

WARNING: Misleading 2021 Annual Report Mailer from C.F.S.


JACKSON
 – The Secretary of State’s Office urges the business community, especially LLCs, to be cautious of a misleading mailer sent by a private entity called C.F.S. In the mailer, the company offers to prepare 2021 annual reports for a $75.00 fee. The mailer may appear to be official government correspondence, but the fine print makes it clear it is not. All business owners should be aware this correspondence is not authorized by the Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office.

Click here to view a copy of the mailer.

As a reminder, domestic LLC owners can file annual reports on the Secretary of State’s website at no cost. Annual reports are due by April 15th of each year, and our office sends numerous reminders, via electronic mail and traditional mail, reminding our Mississippi LLCs of upcoming filing deadlines and responsibilities.

Businesses may report deceptive or misleading solicitations to our office or the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office. The Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Hotline is 1-800-281-4418.

For more information, please contact the Secretary of State’s Business Services Division at customerservice@sos.ms.gov or (601)359-1633.
