Another Possible Scam … Deed Retrieval Services
You all have heard of the letters that go out each year offering homeowners a homestead exemption for the low price of $25 or $30. You also know that no one ever has to pay for a Homestead exemption…. it is free.
Well now there is a new letter called ‘Deed Retrieval Services’ and it is from the State Record Retrieval Board which, by the way is NOT a state agency. This one offers to provide the homeowner with their ‘…… Deed and complete Property Profile’ for the cost of $87.
The letter says they are not affiliated with any governmental agency nor your county. It is only a solicitation. All of that is correct, however, there is no reason to pay for these items, so please let your clients, friends and neighbors know about it before they send money to this entity.
