Dear Clients and Other Friends:

Please be aware that there is a scam that is targeting business owners in Maine. If you receive a letter from CORPORATE RECORD SERVICE at 126 Western Ave, Augusta Maine, it is a scam. They ask for a list of shareholders and minutes from your annual meeting, plus a $125 fee. See the attached example here. Please do not respond to this document.

The Secretary of State has issued an alert regarding the scam. You can follow the link below for more information.
