Attention all businesses, especially small business owners. You might receive in the mail an "Annual Minutes Disclosure Statement" request form that asks for an annual fee of $125. Beware, this is a big scam that is being ran all over the country.

This form asks you some questions that seems legit but if you keep on reading the fine print, it would say "The product or service has not been approved or endorsed by any government agency..." A big red flag. Check out the link for another blogger who came across this scam a few years back in California.

I am usually smart about these things. This time, I was close to being scammed. I was actually filing in the forms and have completed it. Good thing I forgot my checkbook at home.

Avoid being scammed, read all those fine prints.
