NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee secretary of state's office says a scam artist is targeting corporations with an official-looking mail piece.
The letter from Corporate Records Service asks for a $125 fee to file annual reports with the secretary of state's office.
Secretary Tre Hargett said most corporations have recently received genuine notices to file their reports.
Hargett said Corporate Records Service isn't licensed to do business in Tennessee, and the legitimate fee for corporations to file annual reports is $20.
