What is a Registered Agent?

A Registered Agent is a “Third Party” Agent, i.e. a person or company physically located in the state where your company is registered, available to the authorities during business hours and who will accept all documents submitted by the Courts, the Secretary of State, the Department of State and other federal government entities that may need to contact you.

False Identification Crime Control

The False Identification Crime Control Act of 1982, Public Law 97-398, 96 Stat. 2009 (approved December 31, 1982) was the culmination of a ten-year legislative process to improve federal criminal statutes relating to the false identification problem. It was the outgrowth of a comprehensive study on the criminal use of false identification made by the Justice Department sponsored Federal Advisory Committee on False Identification (FACFI) in the mid-1970s. The Department of Justice strongly supported the legislative effort. The False Identification Crime Control Act created two new statutes: (1) 18 U.S.C. § 1028, entitled “Fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents,” which deals with governmental identification documents; and (2) 18 U.S.C. § 1738, entitled “Mailing private identification documents without a disclaimer,” which deals with non-governmental identification documents.
