It takes a village to build a business.
In America, we love the image of the rugged individualist, the entrepreneur who strikes out on his own to capture fortune and fame with his own two hands. It’s an inspiring narrative, but it doesn’t quite square with the realities of 21st Century business.
To be successful today you need help, and business owners across the nation are fortunate to have an array of professionals to turn to for aid. Registered agents, lawyers, accountants – they all provide essential services to the modern businessperson.
Company Alarm is cut from the same cloth. Like registered agents or accountants, we provide a critical service to help businesses thrive. Business identity theft is a growing problem in the United States, but few people know anything about it.
Our education on the subject began in early 2017, when our founder, Andy Pham, a serial entrepreneur and property developer, discovered someone had logged onto the Nevada Secretary of State’s website and not only hijacked one of his companies but also stole a $5 million piece of land he had stashed in it.
Andy turned to his circle for help – his lawyers, accountants, his business partners and investors – but nobody knew how to respond. It was then that he realized the network of associates business people can hire for assistance had a gap.
Over the ensuing months, Andy learned more about business identity theft and, sadly, met other victims of this beguiling crime. Eventually he met Ralph Gagliardi, a Colorado-based criminal investigator who leads one of the nation’s only law enforcement units dedicated to business identity theft. Agent Gagliardi confirmed Andy’s worst fears: Business identity theft is a pervasive problem across the country, but it’s rarely reported and not tracked by any government agency.
It is a silent menace, stalking businesses big and small. Any company is vulnerable.
That’s why Andy founded Company Alarm – to help protect businesses. With our 24-hour monitoring, you will be notified immediately if fraudsters hijack your business identity. And with our steady stream of educational content about business identity theft, we hope to warn everyone – whether they sign up for our services or not – about the dangers all businesses face.
But we can’t fight this battle alone. Company Alarm is the new kid on the block, a fresh face in the business world. Business people don’t know us and don’t know about the problem we’re trying to fix.
That’s why it’s vital for Company Alarm to partner with the established professionals already engaged in helping businesses thrive. If you’re an attorney, an accountant or a registered agent, you can help spread the word about the dangers of business identity theft and partner with us to protect your clients.
