Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III and Secretary of State Tre Hargett have announced a lawsuit against three Michigan-based companies — Labor Law Poster Service, Council for Corporations and ANS Inc. — and several family members that operate the entities based on claims that the companies have harmed Tennessee businesses. The state alleges the entities send mailers that look like invoices, threaten penalties, and demand a large fee for the filing of annual reports, something that business owners can easily do themselves online for a nominal fee. The companies previously settled with the state but are accused of continuing to send the phony mailings.
