It has come to our attention that some business owners have received letters, ostensibly from a U.S. Government agency called the “United States Business Regulations Department,” notifying them of a registration requirement and potential financial penalties. Upon investigation, it has been confirmed that these communications are not from any legitimate government entity but rather from scammers attempting to defraud unsuspecting small business owners.
If you encounter any suspicious communications or believe you have been targeted by a scam, please report the incident promptly to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) via their official reporting platform: https://reportfraud.ftc.gov. Your vigilance can contribute to the collective effort in combating fraudulent activities.
