At the last Regular Council Meeting, Antrim County Register of Deeds Patty Niepoth presented a free fraud prevention program that is available. Property Fraud Alert is an online subscription service offered to the public that allows them to have their name monitored within the Recorder’s office in order to track possible fraudulent recordings that affects their property.
The threat of mortgage fraud and identity theft crimes continue to rise, and all too often victims of these types of fraudulent activities are unaware their homes or identity have been stolen. While Property Fraud Alert does not prevent fraud from happening, it does provide an early warning system for property owners to take appropriate actions should they determine possible fraudulent activity has taken place.
It’s simple! Just enter your personal and/or business name and you will be notified when a document is recorded if the name is matched in the system.
