Grant deed scam

Dear Editor:Downey residents, if you receive a mailer from any type of title compliance office (or any similar company) requesting funds for a copy of your grant deed, please contact your realtor. This is an unnecessary scam to get your money. By calling your realtor, they will take a look at the mailing you received and verify that it is an unnecessary scam. If you do not have a local realtor, go to to search for one. -- Jeanette Baumann, Executive vice president, Downey Association of Realtors
