THE NEVADA ATTORNEY GENERAL'S JOB IS TO MAKE SURE CONSUMERS ARE NOT TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF!!!!!!!
Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto announced on December 2, 2011 in a press release that a settlement agreement was reached with a company named “Registered Agent, Inc.” regarding advertisements it sent by mail to corporations in order to deceptively change registered agents.
Nevada Attorney General Registered Agent Inc Settlement
Registered Agent, Inc. denied all wrongdoing, liability and unlawfulness in the settlement agreement and any previous statements to the contrary in this website are retracted. However, the Attorney General’s announcement states that “...As a result of the settlement, Registered Agent, Inc. has agreed to refund all monies paid by those corporations identified by the Nevada Attorney General and to pay a $2,500 fine. In addition, Registered Agent, Inc. has agreed to include notices in a clear and distinct format indicating that the letter is a solicitation to corporations to change the corporation’s registered agent.”
A common tactic we’ve seen in all kinds of states is where a company operates under a generic name, and sends out an official looking notice that is basically an advertisement, and includes a couple actual state forms to change the registered agent. The advertisement combined with actual state forms actually gets confused people to sign up for whatever the company is advertising and inadvertently change their registered agent away from who they have used in the past.
