Scams - That's right, no one prepared you for this, but as soon as you start a business, the "bad guys" will come crawling out from everywhere in an effort to get a "piece of the pie".


Once your business is officially registered through your local courthouse, you are input into a database. This database is publicly available and used by all of the worst people out there to paint a big target on your back. 

You can expect to receive calls, emails and even letters in the mail that are designed to TRICK you.  They may confuse you, or even look like a legitimate service that you actually utilize or need.

One of the most common ones we see (almost weekly) is the DOMAIN NAME registration scam.

Here is a summary of what this is and what to look out for.

You receive a letter in the mail that looks legit. It has your name and address and companies domain name all filled out in a form and ready for you to sign and submit payment. However, if you ARE AWARE of this scam, you will take a second and remember (or look at your invoice) that you did not use this company to register your domain name. You may also remember that you only paid $12.99 per year for your domain, and here, they are charging a ridiculous amount like $150.00 per year.
