The suit alleges the companies preyed on homeowners who didn't know they could get the same paperwork for much less from a county recorder.

A copy of a deed to a home should not cost more than $1 a page.

The Indiana Attorney General‘s office is suing three out-of-state companies, accusing them of duping new and elderly homeowners into paying as much as $89 for copies of deeds.

Those copies can be obtained from county recorders for no more than a dollar a page.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller says the defendants were sending those property owners mailings that appeared to be official government forms.
