Pays your Fee,
You do not.

Clients are being solicited by fake UCC1 filing fee letters across the United States.

An official-looking mailer from “STATE UCC Statement Service” incorrectly implies that businesses or individuals need a copy of the UCC-1 financing statement filed against them. 

“Our Division of Business and Charitable Organizations and I were recently made aware of a new misleading mailer trying to take advantage of Tennesseans,” said Secretary Hargett. “The look and language used on this mailer tries to trick borrowers into paying an excessive amount for a document they will most likely never need.”
We encourage clients to be wary of any mailings they get from third-party companies that say they will work with my office on your behalf. These organizations are not affiliated with or authorized by the state government in any way. They are charging excessive amounts for something you likely will never need and, if you do, can be easily obtained through NCS

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a comprehensive set of laws governing sales and other commercial transactions. A UCC-1 financing statement is a legal form that a creditor files to give notice that it has the right to take possession of and sell certain assets belonging to the debtor for the repayment of a specific debt. UCC-1 financing statements are common in Tennessee, with the Secretary of State’s Division of Business and Charitable Organizations issuing around 200,000 each year.
