Several clients have reported receiving fraudulent solicitations, such as the sample below, requesting them to submit a form and a fee to a third party to file a Statement of Information on their behalf with the California Secretary of State. According to the solicitation, failure to do so will cause assessment of penalties, fines, and risk of suspension.

Avoid proceeding with any of the services listed in this solicitation as this private entity is not affiliated with the Secretary of State or any other government agency.
