New Mexico Scams

The New Mexico Attorney General warns consumers of a letter from the national deed service.

It is sent via the U.S. Postal Service.

The letter says if you want to get a copy of your property deed, to send $59.50.

The letter also says the federal information center website recommends all property owners have a certified copy of their deed.

But the A.G. says be suspicious of the letter and report it to his office.

Another one to look out for is sent through email.

Also, the attorney general reports a lottery scam is filling up email inboxes around the state.

The email tells you you have won the lottery and asks you to send the claims agent containing your name, address, phone number, email address and other personal information.

The email does contain some misspellings and poor grammar usage, two tell-tale signs of a fake email.
