DLEG Warns of Scam
LANSING — The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth last week issued a warning about a scam that mimics the department’s mailings to bilk business owners.
DLEG Director Keith W. Cooley said the letters use official-looking stationery to try to convince businesses that they must pay hundreds of dollars to be listed on a national database or risk dissolution of their corporations.
Cooley urged businesses that receive scam letters to keep the notice and its envelopes, and contact the U.S. Postal Inspections Service to report mail fraud. He also suggested contacting the state Attorney General.
Postal Inspections may be reached at 877-876-2455, or online at http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraudComplaint.aspx. Reach the state Attorney General’s office at P.O. Box 30212, Lansing, MI, 48909.
