(Mineola, NY)  Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell was recently a guest speaker at the Williston Park Seniors Club meeting.  Clerk O’Connell spoke with members about the services the Clerk’s office provides to the community including the processing and maintenance of the County’s land and court records.  Clerk O’Connell also advised residents about mass mailings for costly deed retrieval services, some of which cost 1000% more than the Clerk’s Office fees, and to disregard such offers.  These deceptive solicitations advise homeowners they need to purchase a certified copy of their deed which actually can be obtained directly from the Clerk’s office for a nominal fee.  She cautioned homeowners to be aware of other types of scams seen at the Clerk’s office and initiatives she has undertaken to assist and protect residents.  Clerk O’Connell reminded the seniors to be wary of solicitations looking for any type of personal identifying information.
