An important warning issued by Georgia’s Secretary of State's Office.

Business owners will want to keep an eye out for a scam letter in the mail warning them to renew the registration for their company.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger says it's all a scam.

The letter is from a sham entity called Workplace Compliance Service.

According to Sec. Raffensperger, it's all a ploy to scare business owners into paying hundreds of dollars in unnecessary fees.

The scam letters request $135 checks made payable to "Workplace Compliance Services."

Do not send any money or information to this company.

Businesses are only required to file an annual registration with the secretary of state's office and no other entity.
