County Clerk Dinolfo Warns Of Local Deed "Scam"

Wed, Aug 29 2012

Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo today warned Monroe County residents of another deed scam that has targeted new property owners. The County Clerk’s Office has been contacted by local residents who have received what appears to be an official letter from a company called “Local Records Office” which urges the owner to send $89.00 to the company for a copy of the property owner’s deed. The letter also indicates that the property owner should respond by a specific date. Equally disturbing is the misleading statement in the solicitation indicating that a copy of the deed can be obtained from a County Recorder (County Clerk’s Office) for a cost of “up to $89.00”.
