There is no scam like an old scam and one that is making a new resurgence  is a scam in which you receive a call, email or letter informing you of the importance of having a copy of the deed to your home.  Often these scammers will charge you up to $90 to obtain a copy of your deed for you.  Having an actual copy of your deed is not very important once it has been recorded in the local Registry of Deeds, however it is still a good record to keep.  However, obtaining a copy of your deed on your own from your local Registry of Deeds is both simple and rarely costs more than a couple of dollars at the most.


If you get such a call, email or letter, merely ignore it.  If you want a copy of your deed, merely contact your local Registry of Deeds where you can get one for a nominal cost.
