Recorder: Deed notice is a scam

Boone County — Boone County residents should be on the lookout for a Deed Conveyance Notice arriving in the mail — and promptly throw it away.

Thursday, Boone County Recorder Mary Alice “Sam” Baldwin said that several Boone County residents have alerted her to the attempted scam.

The mailing looks like a bill and appears to require immediate attention.

It shows an amount due of $86 with a late fee of $35 if the recipient fails to respond before Sept. 28.

As an explanation for the “bill,” the letter says Proxy Data Retrieval recommends that all homeowners obtain a copy of their current grant deed to prove that the property was in fact transferred to them. The letters are personalized to include the recipient’s name and address.
