Watch for scam letter in mail

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- There is a new scam targeting homeowners.
CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- There is a new scam targeting homeowners. County officials say families are getting letters in the mail.

They offer homeowners a copy of their deeds and property profiles. All you have to do is send in money.

Dozens were sent out, but right away, some homeowners knew something was up. Mat Martin, of Mahomet, recieved one in the mail a few weeks ago.

"It was a little fishy," said Martin. "I usually don't get letters like these and I figured when we had the closing everything was settled."

The Champaign County Recorder says all the information offered in the letter is available at its office.
