A client recently forwarded a document that had been sent to her business. The notice looked official and listed a fee of $125.00. A space was provided for credit card numbers and a mailing address was given to mail a check.
At first glance, the notice appears to be affiliated with a North Carolina office. However, upon reading the fine print, the notice clearly states that this company is NOT a government agency nor is it contracted by a government agency.
