Alert Concerning Solicitation to New Jersey Businesses
The Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services is alerting all New Jersey businesses to be aware of mailings concerning a “2014 Certificate of Good Standing Request Form." Certain private companies are sending the mailings, which solicit a fee of $98.99 in return for obtaining a New Jersey Certificate of Good Standing and corporate document templates. Businesses should be aware that the State of New Jersey does not require this form to be purchased and should not be confused by the official appearance of the mailings. They are not connected with the State of New Jersey’s business entity Standing Certificates process, and the State has no affiliation with the sender.
New Jersey businesses that receive the mailing may report this by:
- Filing a complaint with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, PO Box 45025, Newark, NJ 07101. Visit http://www.nj.gov/oag/ca/complaint/ocp.pdf to download a complaint form; or
- Contacting the United States Postal Inspections Service to report mail fraud at: (877) 876-2455 or http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraudComplaint.aspx.
Corporate officers and business representatives who have questions about these mailings should contact the Division’s Hotline
