Alert: Maryland Businesses Receiving Fake “2020 Certificate of Good Standing Request Form” Letter;

The Office of the Attorney General has received information that businesses in Maryland have been receiving a letter entitled “2020 Certificate of Good Standing Request Form” that requests a fee in exchange for a letter of good standing with an “official seal of the Secretary of State.” This letter is a SCAM. This same scam letter was circulated in late 2019.


The scam letter asks the recipient to send a check or money order to an entity named “MD Certificate Service” in Annapolis, MD in exchange for an “elective Maryland Certificate of Good Standing.” The letter goes to great lengths to look official with a “document number” and a barcode, and includes a customer service phone number of 1-855-222-3322.
