01 Aug Don’t fall for the “DEED COPY” scam!!
NEVER PAY ANYONE FOR A COPY OF THE RECORDED GRANT DEED THAT SHOWS YOU ARE THE RIGHTFUL OWNER OF YOUR HOME!
Just today, a CALIFORNIA DOCUMENT PREPARERES-Oakland customer brought in a form she received that appeared to be a document from a OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT OFFICE. The document was worded in a way that coerced her into believing that she should have a copy of her “Deed” from them for her protection. They offered to give her a certified copy of her deed for “only” $80.00. It looked very official…even down to the “promise of prompt processing if you return said $80.00 by the requested deadline.” It was even from a place called “COUNTY RECORDS OFFICE” even though it wasn’t really a governmental agency. Scam artists send these out to everyone who records a deed.
Be aware of these kind of “BOGUS NOTICES” and Please, DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY…… THIS IS A SCAM!!! If you want one of us to look at any mail you receive after we complete your service for you, just come in to one of our offices.
