I got a letter yesterday. Apparently, a company I’d recently registered had a bill for $84. That’s interesting — it hadn’t started operating yet.
I read it again, and realized what was happening.
Red flags ⛳️
- There was no mention of this “requirement” during the registration process. If it was this important, shouldn’t it have come up?
- I’ve never seen these posters in any workplace I’ve been in.
- No government seal at the top.
- The government operates out of a random office suite off the highway?
- Info@LaborPosterServices.com (not .gov)
I was lucky enough to spot the signs, but not everyone knows what to look for. New business owners tend to be in a vulnerable place; taking advantage of that by threatening a $17,000 fee is pretty hexed.
I looked it up, and the owner of LaborPosterServices.com is a man named Robert Ramos. I’m not going to post his contact information because the point isn’t to hunt down one guy. It’s a reminder that there are a lot more Robert Ramos’s and Labor Compliance Departments in the world, and you should always check their story…especially if they’re asking you for money.
