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.

MINOCQUA - Owners of wooden boats describe them as labors of love.
"If you're going to own a boat like this, you have to have a commitment," said boat owner Marc Toigo. "It's not optional."
It's the kind of commitment Gordon Moore had when he helped start the Minocqua Antique Wooden & Classic Boat Show 26 years ago. Moore passed away in August, making this weekend's show the first without him.
"We're going to laugh a lot, because he'd want us to," said show organizer Al Hanley. "(Moore) had a great sense of humor, he was a truly unique individual."
