Attorney General Files Lawsuits Against Businesses

Last updated on Thursday, June 6, 2013

(VANDERBURGH) - Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced he’s filing lawsuits against three California-based businesses, and one of those suits was filed in Vanderburgh County.

Kara Mattingly of WFIE reports that businesses sent misleading mailers made to look like they came from a government office.

Zoeller says the mailers were intended to convince homeowners they needed to buy copies of property deeds sometimes at a cost of more than $80.

The Vanderburgh County Recorder says her office has been receiving two to three reports of the mailers a month, dating back to last fall.

Having a copy of your property deed is not required in Indiana, but in Vanderburgh County, you can buy a copy for $1 a page at the Recorder's Office in the Civic Center.
