A company’s solicitation to certify deeds has hit homes again in Johnson County, Missouri.


Records Recovery Services, mailed a deed notice to a local woman asking that she send $87 to have the deed to her home certified — a simple task that can be done for approximately $5 or less in the office.


The letter is filled with disclaimers that suggest their services are not associated with any governmental agency and that it is not a bill. Since it looks legitimate containing personal information gathered under public record it is a concern that some property owners may fall victim.


This $87 fee is steep compared to the $1 per page fee the office offers.


We urge anyone who receives such a letter to contact the office for more information at  660-747-6811.
