 • Hamilton County Recorder's office warns residents of a scam.

 Hamilton County Recorder Kim Anderson is encouraging residents to be cautious if they receive a piece of mail asking them if they want a copy of their deed and property assessment. Recorder's offices across the state have received phone calls from concerned citizens about letters they received saying there was "deed activity recorded in public record" and that they should obtain a "current property grant deed and assessment" from companies charging $70 to $80 for the copy service. Anyone receiving this notice should not be alarmed or feel that it is necessary to respond to it. A copy of the deed may be obtained at the Recorder's Office and generally costs less than a couple of dollars in copy fees. The Attorney General's office wants to hear from any Iowan who has received this solicitation. Please contact Stephen Switzer, Iowa Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division, 1305 East Walnut Street, Des Moines,Iowa 50310 or by calling 515-281-8771.You may also contact Kim Anderson at the Recorder's office at 515-832-9535 for any questions of a copy of your deed.
