NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Tennessee Secretary of state Tre Hargett says a scam is targeting corporations.

Companies are receiving letters that mimic official state correspondence, but it is from ``Corporate Records Service.''

Corporations are required to file annual reports with the secretary of state's office and the letter asks for a $125 filing fee. The state fee is only $20.

Hargett said Corporate Records Service is not on file with the secretary of state's office and he warns corporations to provide no confidential information, including credit card numbers.

Annual reports can be filed to the state online at http://tnbear.tn.gov/Ecommerce/FilingSearch.aspx.
