JACOBS AND POLONCARZ WARN HOMEOWNERS OF “DEED SCAM”

Erie County, NY- County Clerk Chris Jacobs and County Executive Mark Poloncarz want to caution all Erie County property owners to watch for misleading solicitations offering to sell you a "Certified Copy of Your Deed". The company issuing such notices is titled New York Record Retrieval, Inc., and is dramatically overcharging homeowners for this service by as much as 1000%.

“I want to inform the citizens of Erie County that the entities marketing such requests are not at all related to the County Clerk’s Office or any other department inside Erie County government,” said Clerk Jacobs. “If you receive one of these letters, you should disregard it. A certified copy of your deed is always available from the County Clerk’s Office.”
