JESSE WHITE WARNS BUSINESSES OF CORPORATE SCAM

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White warns businesses of a scam targeting corporations.  The firm called Corporate Records Service is contacting businesses in an attempt to collect a $125.00 fee to fill out a corporation’s “Annual Minutes Records Form.”  Corporations are not required to file a “Minutes Records Form” or pay a fee.  The bogus form looks similar to the Secretary of State’s annual report form and White is concerned companies will file the form and pay the fee believing they are filing the annual report form.  If you receive these false documents or are a victim of the scam, call the Secretary of State’s Business Services Office at 217-782-6961.
