Scam Alert
Many people have received letters from non-governmental businesses telling them they need to purchase a "Certified Copy of your Deed." The letter looks official as they have the Eddy County Clerk's Document Number for your property deed and says the government wants everyone to have their own copy. While it is a good idea to have a copy in a safe deposit box or other safe place, you do not have to have one in your possession.  If you receive one of these letters IT IS NOT FROM THE COUNTY CLERK.   Please be advised you can get a copy of your deed on file by calling the Clerk's Office.  The cost of a copy  is 50 cents or $1.50 for a certified copy. IT IS NOT REQUIRED. DO NOT FALL FOR SCAMS CALL AND ASK QUESTIONS.
