Texas takes action against California company targeting small businesses nationwide


Texas officials filed charges against two Californians operating a business under the name Compliance Services that solicits money from small business owners in the name of getting them to comply with the law.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott won a temporary restraining order preventing Compliance Services and principals Selwyn Monarch and Gayle N. Standford from sending the mailings to Texas businesses. Other states, including Massachusetts, Ohio and Florida have warned against this and other similar attempts to solicit money from business owners. Here's an example of one of the mailings.
