Reports of Deed Scam in area

 

August 28, 2018

BELTRAMI COUNTY, MN-- The Beltrami County Recorders Office is once again experiencing inquiries into a mailing that they recently received coaxing taxpayers into paying an $89 fee to get a copy of their deed as pictured.

Please remember, and remind your friends and family members that this is a scam. If you would like a copy of your deed it is available through the Beltrami County Recorders office for one dollar.

The best thing you can do to avoid becoming a victim of a scam is to protect yourself? Education and common sense are your best defense. Educate yourself and those you love on the types of scams and how you can become a victim of a scam and use that education to protect yourself. Education, supported by good, old fashion common sense are your best defense. If it sounds too good to be true- it most likely is or was a scam.
