    Hello BHW,

    Today I contact to GoDaddy for EV SSL Certificate but they Need a Certified Letter from an Attorney or CPA to Confirm Business.

    How can I get this documents or is there any way to get EV SSL without this document?

    Thanks...

    You should be able to go to a CPA, have them look over your financials and retain them to do your taxes this year. Then they should have no problem writing a verification letter for you. CPA should be cheaper/hour than attorney. You can always do a little social engineering and let them believe you'll hire them to do your taxes this year and just pay them for like an hour of time to write and mail a certified letter for you then never hire them for tax season or just ask them if you can pay them to glance at your financials and then write you a letter. However, you will most likely have to retain them as your CPA to get it done.

    Unfortunately I dont have any Tax ID & I never paid any TAX. Is there anyway to get this?

    I am making a Local eCommerce Site, All the payment after delivery (hand cash). But I just want the EV SSL for Showing Off (as Giant Sites). Here we dont need to pay TAX for this type of Online Stores and still not I am student. So How Can I get his type of Documents ? Better if I can it from US CPA. Is there anyway?

    Well, if you don't even have a tax ID (EIN or whatever) then chances are you don't really have a business either, even at the LLC or sole proprietorship level. So, I doubt you're going to find a professional attorney or CPA to write a letter lying about this and send it as certified mail. I'd say either you're out of luck or you'll need to forge/fake it.

    The only other thing I'm wondering, do you actually have to be a business or do they just have to confirm that you're the owner of the site. If that's the case I'd say you'd probably be able to get a lawyer, especially one specializing in IP or something similar, to sign off for a few hundred bucks. Because some SSL sites are not businesses right? Or maybe they all are as I actually can't think of an example of one that isn't.

    Why in the world would you suggest to someone to forge a document that can easily be backtracked?

    Do things the right way. Get a business going. Get the tax id and follow their guidelines. Seems like you are trying to cut corners and that will blow up in your face ultimately.

    There are several ways to do things the proper way.
