Residents are urged to be on the lookout for offers involving property deeds or profiles, according to Quay County Clerk Ellen White.
White said residents have contacted her office about a letter they received, offering a copy of their current property deed or profile by sending them $85. White said the service is offered at the clerk's office for $1.
She said if any residents have any questions regarding their deed or property profile they can contact the County Clerks Office at 461-0510.
Tucumcari Police Chief Jason Braziel said any mail requesting money should be an immediate red flag. He said anyone who receives a letter that seems suspicious can bring that letter in to the Police Department for officers to look over.
Assistant District Attorney Tim Rose could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
