    Property Fraud Alert

    Be Informed…Be Alert…Be Notified

    According to the FBI, Property and Mortgage Fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime. It can be as simple as someone recording a fraudulent document in the County land Records office making it look like they now own your home or property.

    To address these concerns, John Warren, Dallas County Clerk has joined with Fidlar Technologies to create a service that will help you combat the effects of Land fraud and other similar fraudulent activities.

    YOU GO MR. WARREN!!!!
