The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office has received numerous complaints regarding a company called “Annual Business Services.” Apparently, Annual Business Services is soliciting businesses for sensitive information, along with a check for $125.00 in order to prepare an “Annual Minutes Requirement Statement.” No such statement is actually required by the Secretary of State’s Office. If you have any questions, contact the Business Services Division of the Secretary of State’s Office at 601.359.1633, or feel free to give us a call at 800.533.7272.
