The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office has filed a consumer-protection lawsuit against a Philadelphia woman alleging she misled homeowners in the city by sending them solicitation letters that gave the appearance she was connected with the city's Department of Records.
Wanda Rogers, 57, of the 2700 block of Cranston Road in West Philadelphia,
allegedly sent letters to homeowners asking them to pay a fee to obtain a copy of the deed to their home. Her letters sought a processing fee between $135 and $227, the AG's Office said in a news release Tuesday.
Rogers, who did not work for the city or have any connection with it, listed her business as the Philadelphia Deeds and Registry Offices, the AG's Office said. She allegedly listed fictitious government officials on her letters and made them look official.
