At this link:


... no, you don't have to login ...

You will find the State of Oregon Business Registry Database

You may enter the name of any business statewide, and find out
who the Registered Agent, President, Secretary, etc.
+ all kinds of fun info about them.

On many larger businesses, the "registered agent" is a lawyer
or some other cover for them.

Often, the Full Name(s) of the Owner(s) are shown along
with their home addresses and telephone numbers.

So, if 'ya get ripped off by a business, or they burned 'ya
as an employer, etc. YOU, too have a resource at your fingertips
to find out who you're REALLY dealing with.
