What is Property Fraud?
Property fraud occurs when scammers record fake property deeds, making it appear as if they own the property when they actually have no legal right to it. These scammers then apply for loans using the property as collateral, trick people into giving them money to rent the property, or try to sell the property.
Our Property Fraud Alert Program is a free service to help our county residents get notice when deeds are filed in their name. Please protect your property rights from fraud by signing up to monitor the documents being recorded in the Register of Deeds Office. Call our office at 414-278-4005 for more information.
