Roger D. Eaton, Charlotte County Clerk of Circuit Court and County Comptroller, introduces a new fraud prevention service to protect citizens from property fraud by monitoring documents such as liens, deeds and mortgages that are recorded in Charlotte County
Using Property Fraud Alert, anyone can register to receive free alerts when a document is recorded using their name or their business name. When users receive an alert by email, they can verify the activity was initiated by them and not someone attempting to commit property fraud. Anyone who believes they are a victim of property fraud is urged to contact law enforcement.
