Business Filing scams have become increasingly common. Last year the office of the Attorney General released a warning over misleading mailings sent to Idaho businesses.
“It is beyond unfortunate that companies attempt to deceive and mislead people in pursuit of illegitimate profit,” Denney says. “But nonetheless these scams persist. We wish to remind Idaho business owners that if at any time you question the authenticity of a request for business information or a statement requesting payment for a service, please contact our office or the Idaho Attorney General.”
A company called ID Certificate Service is routinely mailing a very official looking form to new business owners, requesting $73.50 for a fraudulent Certificate of Existence.
A legitimate Certificate of Existence can be requested from the Idaho Secretary of State for $10.
If you are looking to start a new business, or relocating a business to Idaho, please contact our office for assistance.
