(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger is warning businesses about unsolicited text messages related to the filing of annual reports.
Jaeger says his office has received complaints about the text messages over the past few weeks. Officials say the messages may include a false filing deadline for a business's annual report and further encourage businesses to file the report "the easy way." A false link is included in the text that leads to a pay page for an inflated filing fee.
At least one business has fallen victim to the fraudulent messages.
