Alabama: Misleading Letter Targets Business Community

Alabama Secretary of State John H. Merrill has issued a warning regarding misleading letters that are targeting businesses across the state. The letters are being sent by an entity called AL Certificate Service, which is not associated with any state or government agencies. While the press release does not include an example of the letter, it does mention that the deceptive letters include a “Certificate of Existence” request form (presumably requesting that a fee be paid for its submission). The Office of the Secretary of State has reported this organization to the Office of the Attorney General.
