Another Current scam is being placed a phone call from the IRS and asking to provide payment for back taxes of face prosecution or jail. Many of these are coming from a 521 area code.

Another money grab is being seen around town from the Record Transfer Services located in Westlake Village or Thousand Oaks California. They want you to send them a processing fee to obtain a copy of your property profile, and your record of property ownership deed.  This is not a scam, however the information they provide can be found for free on the City website and your deed information can be obtained at the County Clerks office for a much smaller fee then they are asking. Please don't waste your money on this service.
