Exclamation Routine Reminder: Please Inform CGF of Any Unusual DOJ Activity

This is just a routine reminder that part of CGF's role is to make sure that law-abiding FFLs in California can go about their business without any unwarranted interference from any government entity. . .

In particular, we are interested in any strange or unusual interactions that you may have recently had with the DOJ/BOF.

If you have had any strange or unusual interactions with the DOJ/BOF, please PM me with the date, description of the incident, and the name/contact info for the Field Officer(s)/Agent(s) involved.

Again, this is just a routine reminder, and was not preceded by any particular event. Rather, we just want you to know that CGF is here for you if you need us!!!



Examples of strange or unusual interactions might include:

1) Unannounced visits from field agents.
2) Repeated visits from field agents.
3) Requests to copy or take business records.
4) Attempts by field agents to pressure you into doing something (such as not selling a particular item) without any basis in law.
5) Threats, either implied or direct, or ultimatums of any kind.

I'm assuming #1 excludes audits? Or are those people not referred to as field agents?

I could be wrong, but my understanding was that routine audits are generally announced. What I am concerned about are "random" visits from the DOJ that are not preceded with any notice.

Ah, the CGF. In the business of "handing their a**es back to them", and business is good.

I'm not sure, I haven't been audited yet, but talking with drick he mentioned they might come randomly or give you a call up to a day before.

Generally their audits are random. They want to catch you in your normal business and not after they gave you warning to hide all of the things you do wrong.

Sometimes you might get lucky and they might not realize you are closed on Mondays, so when they show up and ask your business partner's next store where you are at, that gives you all of Monday night to cross your t's and dot your i's.
