SCAM ALERT: GO-Biz Imposter Contacting San Diego Businesses
GO-Biz was alerted that several businesses in the San Diego area have been contacted from a 916 phone number by an individual claiming to be a “GO-Biz representative” demanding that the business owner send money or their “business license will be terminated.” This is not a legitimate call. GO-Biz does not collect money from business owners for licensing. This is also not the first time this has happened—previous attempts have traced these activities to identify thieves or out of state call centers.
If businesses in your area are contacted please let them know they should NOT respond and alert GO-Biz directly via their website: www.business.ca.gov. Please share with your networks and help get the word out about these scams.
