“2013 Annual Minutes Form” Scam Alert
The Nebraska Secretary of State’s office is warning about a direct-mail request that seeks money from Nebraska businesses. The mailer titled, "2013 Annual Minutes Form", is being sent to Nebraska corporations from a business that calls itself "Corporate Records Service", and urges corporations to file information and send payment of $125.00 in order to maintain proper records. Clients should be aware that, while the solicitations include a reference to the Nebraska Business Corporation Act and they appear official, this service is not necessary to maintain good standing in the state of Nebraska. If you receive such a mailing, you should disregard it as an unauthorized solicitation, and should not remit payment of any kind. Clients are reminded that any official notices sent from the Secretary of State’s office will include the letterhead and/or contact information for the Business Services Division of the Secretary of State’s office. Please contact us with any questions.
