The Compliance Services Fraud
Notice that you may be getting a solicitation from a company called “Compliance Services”, which asks you to fill up a form that “looks like” an official form. It asks you to send $125 alongwith the completed form to the address at
71 Commercial St.
Postal Main Box 241
Boston MA 02109
This is a fraud and a caution has been posted on the Mass Government website.
It asks the check to be made in the name of “Compliance Service” and says that “All information will be treated as private and confidential. This seems like a fraud and the police and the investigation agencies may like to investigate it.
The “document” sent by the so called “Compliance Services” has two parts. The first part is the form itself and the second part is the instruction. The form is named “CS MIN-MA11-1”.
