Moore County Register of Deeds Judy D. Martin is warning citizens of a scam circulating the county.

Martin is informing the public concerning an Excessive Fees Alert offered by a company based in California.

Property Profile, Inc. “is mailing notices called a “Recorded Deed Notice” on recent property transfers and is offering to send copies of records related to property transfers for a processing fee of $86.00.”

Martin is urging citizens to disregard the notice because it is a scam.

The public needs to know the following Martin says:

Copies of property transfer documents are free electronically from the Register of Deeds website at:

Copies can be obtained at 100 Dowd Street, Carthage, for 25 cents per page.

If you receive a “Recorded Deed Notice” and have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Register of Deeds office at (910) 947-6370 or e-mail [email protected] 

Also, if you have already sent money to this company, please contact the North Carolina Attorney General’s office at (919) 716-6000 or website at
