The Missouri Fidlar eByte: November 2016
Fidlar would like to commend the Audrain County Recorder of Deeds Office for protecting their constituents’ interest with Property Fraud Alert. The system provides notification to the possibility of fraudulent activity on a property or mortgage. Constituents sign up for the free service and are automatically alerted via phone call or email if there is recording activity associated with that individual’s name. Notifications are sent promptly, giving that subscriber the opportunity to possibly save themselves time and avoid paying large legal fees if the document recorded is determined to be fraudulent. The alert system is one of the Community Outreach Service products that keeps land recording offices across the country an essential resource for the public.
“We sent PFA handouts throughout the county with this month’s tax bill. Since then we received a large amount of phone call inquiries and even thank you calls. One individual had even called a neighboring county to see if they offered Property Fraud Alert in the Recorder’s Office. The county-wide promotion informed a lot of our residents and we’ve gotten a lot of subscribers as a result. I’m proud to offer the Property Fraud Alert service to Audrain County and proud to offer such a valuable service in my office.” – Janis Deimeke, Audrain County Recorder of Deeds
