Businesses Beware: You Don't Have To Pay A Fee For DocuMinute's 'Shareholder Compliance'

DocuMinute.com (that website now responds with a "Cannot find server") has been sued by the California Attorney General for sending bogus mailings to businesses seeking a $100.00 to $175.00 fee for supposed government compliance with shareholder listings.  The suit, filed in Orange County Superior Court, names DocuMinute, Business Compliance Division LLC and Basics Financial Corp. and seeks an injunction to shut down the operations and penalties from the owners.  If you receive government-looking "official" letters from these companies, you can safely put them in the round file

A Google search turned up a blistering thread of posts about this apparent scam.  Beware out there:  email scams are not the only way to get hoodwinked.
