St. George – Francine A. Giani, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Commerce, announced today that the Utah Division of Consumer Protection has cited an unregistered entity, Labor Regulatory Compliance Office, for violating the Utah Consumer Sales Practices Act. Division investigators report the St. George entity sent unsolicited letters to Utah companies with text suggesting it was a billing statement and directed recipients to pay a $285.00 fee that was “due now.” The division discovered Labor Regulatory Compliance Office is not a registered business with the State of Utah and does not hold a valid St. George business license.
“This group is clearly out to scam consumers and businesses by stealing their profits for something the state provides to the public for free,” Giani said. “This letters’ deception is so egregious, our citation has not attached a final fine amount, as our division continues to receive complaints from the community.”
The administrative citation alleges that the unregistered entity committed deceptive acts by intentionally sending mailers to at least 80 confirmed recipients statewide and could face a potential fine of $2,500 per violation.
