Nearly 2,200 Kentucky Small Businesses to Receive Refund from Purchase of Alleged Scam Services

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced on Friday, April 13, 2018 that nearly 2,200 Kentucky small businesses can get money back from a Michigan-based company alleged to have sold scam services. The company, Corporate Records Service, was accused of sending Kentucky businesses an official-looking “Annual Minutes Form” mailer offering to provide “corporate minutes” work to business owners. The Attorney General’s Office alleged the form created the impression that the mailer was sent by a government entity of that the purchase of the annual minutes was required by Kentucky law. As part of the settlement, the company agreed to offer a full refund of $125 to the businesses that purchased the minutes service and pay a penalty, which includes providing more than $93,000 to Kentucky’s general fund.
