PROPERTY FRAUD ALERT SERVICES
Property and identity fraud is a nationwide problem. By filing fake deeds, scammers appear to own property, and can then fraudulently rent or sell property, without the knowledge of the true owner. This can seriously impact the true owner's credit rating, or ability to sell or rent the property. These county-run free services may help you in protecting against property fraud. By signing up for FREE property fraud alerts, you should receive an email alert whenever a document is recorded in that county's Official Records using your personal or business name. Notifications should be sent when a document has been recorded, alerting you so you can choose to review documents through public records or dispute through law enforcement.
