Moore County Register of Deeds Alerts Citizens to Scam

Judy D. Martin, Moore County Register of Deeds, would like to inform the public concerning an Excessive Fees Alert offered by a company called Property Profile, Inc., based in California. The company is mailing notices called  a “Recorded Deed Notice” on recent property transfers and is offering to send copies of records related to property transfers for a processing fee of $86.00. 

This notice is a solicitation or scam that takes advantage of our citizens and should be disregarded.

The public needs to know the following Martin says:

·         Copies of property transfer documents are free electronically from the Register of Deeds website at:

·         Copies can be obtained in our office at 100 Dowd Street, Carthage, for 25 cents per page.

If you receive a “Recorded Deed Notice” and have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Register of Deeds office at (910) 947-6370 or e-mail 

Also, if you have already sent money to this company, please contact the North Carolina Attorney General’s office at (919) 716-6000 or website at
