Rhode Island limited liability companies are being warned about a fraudulent direct mail solicitation that is being sent to LLCs throughout the state by a company called “Rhode Island Corporate Compliance.” A similar warning was posted a few months ago when the scam targeted for-profit corporations. The mailing is requesting that companies submit an “Annual Disclosure Statement” along with a $125 filing fee. The form requests such information as account records, annual meeting minutes, and detailed shareholder information. The state does not require this information from limited liability companies and, while the letter may appear to be official, please be aware that this scam is not a state requirement. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service wants anyone who has paid the $125 fee to call (401) 276-8630. For more information, see the press release below. http://www.ri.gov/press/view/19242
