The Corporate Records Service people do.
Here's the story:
One day I go out to get my mail ...
Here's a scan of a lovely robin's egg blue envelope I received last week. Look at that window with the cellophane and the eagle postage and the words "important" written in large letters.
I open is and see the below. (And I seethe when I see the below. Ha ha.) Anyway, this is the Annual Minutes Form where I have to tell them who are the shareholders, who is on the board of directors, etc. And I also have to send them $125.00 and a credit card number too. I say "have to" because they cite some laws about it.
Hmm ... maybe I can put a couple of the housecats on my board .... Why not? They love power. Makes 'em purr.
Well, I ain't stupid.
What the Corporate Records people don't cite is that fact that I can easily do a Web search for "Corporate Records Service" and figure out if this is all legit and I REALLY TRULY HAVE TO send them $125.00.
New Hampshire says no. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts says it's not. Ditto the Tennessee Secretary of State. And there's lots more. Plus: I found a guy who actually paid the $125 and now wants it back.
Me? I'll sic the cats on 'em!
