Pennsylvania :: Corporate Scam

Pennsylvania Consumer Alert

The Pennsylvania Department of State recently issued a consumer alert regarding misleading solicitations targeting businesses operating within the state. Two companies by the names of Pennsylvania Corporate Compliance Company and Corporate Records Service are behind the solicitations, which include seemingly official documents that are titled “Annual Meeting Disclosure Statement” and “2013 – Annual Minutes Form.” The deceptive mailings urge businesses to file information and pay a $125 fee by a certain date in order to maintain proper records; however, none of the information requested is required to be filed with the Department of State or the Secretary of the Commonwealth. The alert strongly recommends that these documents be disregarded by all companies that receive them.
