Property Fraud Media Conference
Property and mortgage fraud is one of the fastest-growing white-collar crimes in the United States, according to the FBI. Unfortunately, Hillsborough County has become a hotspot for Property Fraud.
Our office is proud to offer a free property fraud alert program that gives homeowners a heads-up when a document is processed in Hillsborough County with their name or business name.
On July 10th, Clerk Stuart and local partners highlighted how these criminals operate and how homeowners can protect themselves. To see highlights from the conference, check out news stories from ABC, Tampa Bay Times, WFLA, Fox13, and Yahoo! News featuring Clerk Stuart and other officials.
