The Miller County Circuit Clerk, Mary Pankey, is offering a service to residents that will help protect their most valuable investment....their land and their home. Property and mortgage fraud is becoming one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes in the country.
Property fraud can be as simple as someone recording a fraudulent document in the Circuit Clerk's recorder office, making it appear as if they now own your home or property. Once this step is complete, they can use your home as collateral on a mortgage or even attempt to sell your home to an unsuspecting buyer.
This service is provided by the Circuit Clerk's office at no cost to the landowner. Persons interested should contact 870-774-4501 or stop by the Miller County Courthouse, 400 Laurel, Suite 109, Texarkana, AR.
