Your BBB has been receiving reports from business owners about a mailing they’re receiving claiming to be an ‘Important Compliance Notice.’ On the reverse side of the mailing there’s a phone number (855-219-7738) recipients are urged to call immediately to ‘Avoid Potential Fees and Penalties.’ We're advising business owners to disregard this mailing, as it is 100% fraudulent.

If someone knocked on your door and said they wanted to work on your car, you'd check them out. Be sure to do the same if someone wants to do work on your home or your driveway! You can research companies for free at bbb.org!

We received a call from a senior this week wanting to know how they could identify fraudulent sweepstakes offers. There are two things to keep in mind as far as that. 1) You can't win a contest you didn't enter. 2) If you have to pay money upfront to claim your alleged winnings (for 'taxes,' 'fees' or 'insurance') you haven't won ANYTHING.

We spoke with KARE 11 last week about IRS impostors. The key takeaway? The IRS will never call to demand immediate payment. http://www.kare11.com/news/phony-irs-scam-targeting-minnesotans/207518695

We were featured on WDIO-TV this week, offering tips on employment schemes targeting recent college graduates. This is a growing issue! wdio.com/news/special-report-student-shakedown-bbb-job-scam/4132089/

We were on KARE 11 yesterday, talking about how to handle door to door solicitors (questions you should be asking, etc). It's definitely that time of year again - be sure you know what to do (and not to do) when you hear that knock at your door.  kare11.com/entertainment/television/programs/news-at-4/how-to-handle-door-to-door-salespeople/167013370

It's Small Business Week, and we're warning all businesses to be on the lookout for directory (Yellow Pages) schemes. We're seeing an uptick in these just now and they can be very nasty! http://www.bbb.org/directoryscam
