The Marion County Recorder’s Office is extending access to a service that allows users to keep a watchful eye for signs of potentially fraudulent activity involving their property.
“In our current economic climate, people are making tough choices over what to do with every dollar, said Harla Friesz, Marion County Recorder. “But at the same time property and mortgage fraud are even a more potential threat. Opening the Fraud Protection Alert Service to everyone and making Marion County less attractive to criminals is in the best interest of the community.”
A common property fraud scenario involves a criminal filing a bogus deed making it appear that the actual owner had transferred ownership of their property to someone else. The criminal then takes that deed to a bank, fraudulently obtains a mortgage and then disappears with a large amount of money.
While it can happen to anyone, perpetrators of property fraud often prey on the elderly, people in long term care facilities, absentee property owners and owners who spend large parts of the year out of town. While these crimes have yet to occur in Marion County in significant numbers, property fraud is a serious problem and is occurring in larger cities.
“The best protection we can offer against property fraud is proactive protection,” said Friesz. Everyone should take advantage of this free service before this crime infects Marion County.
Please contact the Recorder Of Deeds Office for more information on how to sign up or go online and register at www.propertyfraudalert.com.
