‘Corporate Records’ mailing a scam?

The Consumer Protection Unit of the Alaska Attorney General’s Office is warning business owners about an entity called “Corporate Records Service” with an address in Ketchikan.

According to the state, the entity has mailed a form called “Annual Minutes Records,” which tells Alaska businesses they are required to complete the statement and return it by February 13th with a payment of $125.

The solicitation contains a statement that Corporate Records Service is not a government agency, and doesn’t provide services on behalf of any government agency. However, the Consumer Protection Unit says that business owners could misinterpret the official-looking documents.

According to the state, any official statement or request will clearly indicate its origin by displaying the state seal and the name of Governor Sean Parnell.

All required business forms can be found online at commerce.alaska.gov/occ.
