Secretary of State's Office / State of Missouri

Missouri's secretary of state is warning business owners about a deceptive mailer that indicates they have a potential compliance violation.

Secretary of State Jason Kander says the postcards look like an official government document but are not affiliated with any state or federal agency, including the Corporations Division in Kander's office.

Dozens of Missouri businesses have reported receiving the postcards, which direct the recipient to call a toll-free number to avoid fees and penalties.
