I’m so sorry to hear about a UCC lien against your business that you believe to be wrong. The first step in trying to get rid of this is to talk to someone in management at the company that filed the UCC lien and ask for documentation on what you owe them, or provide proof to them that your business is not the one who owes them money. If this doesn’t work then you can swear an oath at your secretary fo state’s office saying that you don’t owe the money. You must be absolutely sure that you don’t though because it’s against the law to swear an oath if you do have a loan obligation. You can learn more by reading your UCC Filing article, including a map that can take you to your SOS website in your state. Good luck!
