The Arkansas Fidlar eByte – October 2018

Saline County Presented With “Citizen Service Award

  • Saline County receives “Citizen Service Award”
  • Property Fraud Alert – the essential outreach service
  • PFA service provided to constituent free of charge

We are always pleased to share with our County Partners the progress of every Fidlar-partnered office in the state; which is why we would like to recognize the Saline County Circuit Clerk’s Office. Myka Bono Sample and staff were recently presented with the Citizen Service Award at the Arkansas Digital Government Transformation Awards by the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) for providing the Property Fraud Alert service to Saline County.

The white-collar crime of mortgage fraud is still prevalent within the United States. Criminals keep finding creative ways to commit these crimes as they continue to record fraudulent documents to gain wrongful ownership of your constituents’ property. By implementing Property Fraud Alert within your office, subscribing constituents will be notified any time there is a document recorded with their name as a party.

Property Fraud Alert gives property owners the beneficial advantage of early notification. This community outreach service will promptly alert a subscriber when there is recording activity associated with their name, whether it be a fraudulent deed, a lien on their property, or a legitimate document. This notification provides the lawful owner the opportunity to take appropriate action if necessary.

Through community outreach services, the Register of Deeds Office can expand its presence to both constituents and the community in general. Property Fraud Alert can assist our County Partners to be the leading advocates in the fight against property fraud! Encourage every constituent to subscribe to this essential service for absolutely no cost – PFA is made available for free through the Circuit Clerk’s Office.



“I’m happy for the staff more than anything – they work really hard for the citizens of Saline County. Our constituents work too hard for people to try to take advantage of the system, so we all need to take helpful measures to protect property and the respective ownership. Without Fidlar, we wouldn’t be able to provide extra services like Property Fraud Alert to our public!” – Myka Bono Sample, Saline County Circuit Clerk
