Property Fraud Prevention

I am sure you have heard of "identity theft" but what about the growing crime of "property fraud"?

A criminal can record a fraudulent deed making it appear as if they now own your home. Once they've done this, they can use your name as collateral on a mortgage or even attempt to sell your home!

Don't let this happen to you!

Carroll County Registry of Deeds has implemented a new FREE notification service called "Property Fraud Alert" in an effort to help prevent various forms of property fraud. It takes less than a minute to sign up and will ensure you are immediately alerted (via email or phone contact) when documents with your registered name are recorded. You may enter up to a total of four personal and/or business names per one unique email address, or up to a total of three personal and/or business names per one unique phone number.

While Property Fraud Alert will not prevent fraud, it will provide an early warning that will allow you to take appropriate actions should you discover possible fraud activity has occurred with your property.
