According to a letter we have been provided by a reader, a complaint was filed by that reader with the Department of Labor and Economic Growth in Michigan that MediaSentry was unlicensed.
The Department confirmed that MediaSentry was not licensed in Michigan, and that it would be sent a letter informing it of the need for a license to conduct regulated activities.
The letter 'encouraged' the sender to pursue his or her complaint with the local prosecutor.
