A recent discovery in the Taney County courthouse highlighted the need for such safeguards as Property Fraud Alert. When county staff members were comparing a suspect document to an established one, they realized that something was slightly off. The stamp at the top of the sheet, outlining the official information, appeared to be similar to another document’s information. So similar, in fact, that the two stamps were identical, leading the officials to investigating the document further. Ultimately, Jody Stahl, Taney County Recorder, and her staff determined the document was a fraud, filed in an attempt to lay claim to an unsuspecting citizen’s property. Diligence, knowledge, and a keen eye saved the Taney County staff and citizens from an increasingly-common scam, and highlighted the importance of safeguarding citizens from such crimes.
