ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany woman wants to warn other homeowners about an offer she says is misleading.

Loretta Young received a letter in the mail Friday telling her she should have a certified copy of her property deed.

National Deed Service from Illinois offered to provide her a copy of her deed for 60-dollars.

We called the county clerk's office today and found out you can get a copy from them for just 25 cents per page.

"$59.50 is the first copy and if you look below it says send us another $20 and we'll send you a second copy, so they want a total of almost $70 and they said they're not going to contact you anymore," said Loretta Young, homeowner.

National Deed Service isn't dishonest about it.

Their letter states they're not affiliated with any government agency, and it says you can obtain the government records directly from government offices on your own for free or a nominal cost.
