Property fraud occurs when someone illegally uses your property for financial gain. This can happen by someone recording a fraudulent document in the county land records office, making it look like they own your home or property.
Property owners must be vigilant. According to the FBI, property and mortgage fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime.
