MADISON - The state is warning Wisconsin businesses about a scam from a company calling itself Corporate Records Service.
The Department of Financial Institutions says there is no state requirement to fill out a "so-called" Annual Minutes Form and submit a fee of 1-hundred 25 dollars
The DFI says the form "looks" official it's not.
An administrator with DFI says ``business owners should not be hoodwinked into giving out potentially confidential information and paying an unnecessary fee.''
The form says that Corporate Records Service is offering to assist businesses with maintaining "minutes of meetings of shareholders and boards of directors", but doesn't give any specifics on how they'll provide that service.
The Corporate Records Service is not registered with DFI.

RHINELANDER - Most people stop by Rhinelander's chamber of commerce to get their picture taken with the giant hodag out front. Visitors to the chamber can also stock up on Rhinelander trinkets and gear.
Now, the chamber has decided to downsize its store in order to let someone else set up shop.
- A Nicolet College club provides a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and allies to socialize and discuss personal issues related to gender and sexual orientation.
However, outside of the campus, there is no supportive group in the Northwoods. Now, the Rainbow Hodags Club is helping to get a community LGBT group started. Club member Don Schindhelm says he wishes a club like this existed years ago.
"I really felt like I didn't know anyone else who was gay or lesbian. It was frowned upon, so I suppressed it for most of my life. That's why I struggled with it for so many years," said Schindhelm.
