In this scam, new homeowners receive a letter in the mail from an “official local agency” advising the homeowner that for only $89 they can provide copies of the property records for their new home. Upon reading the fine print, it is clear that this is a for-profit company and not a legitimate local agency.

Homeowners they could also obtain the same information from their county deed's office for a few dollars, but scammers put this in the fine print just so they have a safety net. They just make you think you have to pay them to get the information.

How to avoid the Copies of Your New Property Records scam:

Be advised that copies of your property records can be purchased for only a few dollars each from your local property assessor's office. These solicitations can come in all forms, making you believe that they are a standard part of the paperwork that all new homeowners must complete upon, and sometimes just after, purchase. If you receive such a solicitation and you are unsure whether it is legitimate or not, call your local assessor's office and ask them if this communication is from them. If it is not, you know that a scammer is attempting to rip you off.
