State warns of potential scam

The Consumer Protection Unit of the Alaska Attorney General’s Office warns business owners about a potential scam letter issued by a group called “Corporate Records Service,” with an address in Ketchikan.

The official-looking letter asks the recipient to list all shareholders, directors and officers. It also seeks a payment of $125.

The form does include a disclaimer that Corporate Records Service is not a government agency and does not have or contract with any government agency to provide this service.

Alerts on Corporate Records Service solicitations have been issued in several states, including Illinois, Indiana and Texas, among others.

The Alaska Attorney General notes that any official statement or request would display the state seal and Gov. Sean Parnell’s name.
