HARRISBURG, Pa. (Legal Newsline) — Pennsylvania Attorney General Bruce R. Beemer has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Wanda D. Rogers for allegedly misleading Philadelphia homeowners.

 

The lawsuit against Rogers, who did business as Philadelphia Deeds and Registry Offices by sending solicitation letters, alleges Rogers sent solicitation letters to consumers that led them to believe she was connected with the city of Philadelphia’s Department of Records. Her letters purportedly listed fictitious government officials and sought payment for processing homeowners’ new home deeds.

 

"These deceptive practices and misrepresentations caused confusion and led consumers to believe they were dealing with the city of Philadelphia," Beemer said. "The law requires companies making solicitations of this nature to state clearly that they are not associated with a government agency."

 

The lawsuit seeks to ban Rogers from engaging in these types of alleged actions in the future. It also seeks full restitution for allegedly affected consumers.

 

"They city provides services at no cost to the public, and those services should never be misappropriated for private gain," said Philadelphia Inspector General Amy L. Kurland. "We can't allow people to take advantage of the public's trust in government."
