Louisiana Secretary of State Warns of Scam

Secretary of State Tom Schedler is notifying all business owners to be cautious when receiving postcards concerning “potential compliance violations” from a company called Business Compliance Division. Business Compliance Division is not affiliated or associated with Louisiana state government in any way. It is a private company, and Louisiana corporations are not required to call or have any dealings with this company at all. Postcards from this company should be discarded immediately.
As a reminder, our office offers an email notification system aimed at protecting Louisiana business owners from fraud and identity theft. Anyone can subscribe to the system which generates messages regarding changes to commercial entities, non-governmental correspondence, office closures and most importantly, warnings involving possible fraudulent activity.
For more information, visit or contact a Commercial Division staff member at 225.925.4704 or
