(2) On or before the date of the first publication of the notice as provided in subsection 14A:12-12(1), the corporation, or the receiver, as the case may be, shall mail a copy of the notice to each known creditor of the corporation. The giving of such notice shall not constitute recognition that any person to whom such notice is directed is a creditor of the corporation other than for the purpose of receipt of notice hereunder.
(3) As used in this section, "creditor" means all persons to whom the corporation is indebted, and all other persons who have claims or rights against the corporation, whether liquidated or unliquidated, matured or unmatured, direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, secured or unsecured.
(4) Proof of the publication and mailing authorized by this section shall be made by an affidavit filed in the office of the Secretary of State.
