Farm Credit

UCC Scam Alert

/

Farm Credit East is encouraging customers to be aware of an official looking mailer from a third-party offering, for a fee, to obtain and mail to the recipient copies of filed UCC financing statements or other documents filed in the land records. Please be aware that these solicitations are not from Farm Credit East or from the filing office. The misleading mailers try to trick the recipient into paying an excessive amount for a document that you can obtain from Farm Credit East, free of charge, or, in most cases, directly from the state filing office at little to no charge.  

If ever there is question, do not hesitate to contact your local Farm Credit East office to request a copy of a filed document or confirm the legitimacy of a payment request.
