State Warns Against Corporate Records Scam
The Illinois secretary of state is warning businesses to look out for a scam. Jesse White said a firm called Corporate Records Service is trying to get Illinois businesses to pay a fee of $125 to fill out their Annual Minutes Records Form.
White is calling the form bogus. It does look very similar to the form the state requires. However, in reality, the state does not require a fee.
Businesses in many other states have reported this scam as well.
If your business has received this scam, please call the secretary of state's business services office.
