... Especially new property owners.
We just had a
new scam show up in our mailbox today. So for any property owners,
especially anyone that has purchased property in the last couple
NATIONAL RECORD SERVICE, INC. is the dirty header.
3775 COMMERCIAL AVE, NORTHBROOK, IL, 60062.
PHONE IS 888-480-2711.
It's a rather nice and official letter notifying you that records show that ownership of a property is at ADDRESS X. Yeah, where you live.
The letter goes on to tell you that you should have a certified copy of your deed, which they can supply to you for 69.50.
THAT'S RIGHT, SEVENTY BUCKS!!!
Just to let you know, if you did not already get all your official
documents when you purchased the property, it's usually easy enough to
get copies of the documents you need from your local town hall or
courthouse for under 20 bucks.
Don't fall prey, or let anyone else you know fall prey to this scam!!!
KEEP IN MIND THAT WE DON'T LIVE IN ILLINOIS, AND WE GOT THIS LETTER. I WOULD SAY THE WHOLE CHICAGOISH AREA COULD GET THIS SPAM.
Keep your eye out for spam like this that comes into your mailbox. Easy enough to filter email spam. But lots of stuff still comes in through the regular mail too.
I suggest a few things to do with it.
Use it for kindling for starting fires.
Use it as paper to roll up a pot to plant seed.
Use it shredded up for making paper mache, or mulch, or whatever.
BUT DON'T EVER, EVER USE IT FOR WHAT IT INSTRUCTS YOU TO ON THE LETTER!!
