[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Drew County Tax Assessor Beth Davis is alerting Drew County property owners about a company trying to trick people into paying more than $80 for a warranty deed to their property.

Drew County property owners have been receiving notices that look like government statements with a due date, but are actually solicitations from a California company that sells property owners a copy of their deed and other real estate documents for more than what the property owner can get the deed at the courthouse.

Anyone who wants a copy of their deed can get one for a 25-cents a page at the Drew County Circuit Clerk’s office. However, this company, Record Transfer Services of Thousand Oaks, Calif., is sending out deed processing notices, telling receivers to send $83 to the company and they will send the receiver a warranty deed.

The company has been been operating for some time with similar scams in other states.

Davis said she received calls Monday morning from two Drew County property owners inquiring about the notices.
