Orange County Comptroller Phil Diamond, CPA Rolls Out Property Fraud Alert Program

Orlando, Florida – Orange County Comptroller Phil Diamond announced that his Official Records Department has set up a free property fraud alert program for Orange County residents.

According to the FBI, property and mortgage fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime. The property fraud alert system helps to protect a person’s property from fraud by monitoring documents such as liens, deeds, and mortgages that are recorded in the Orange County official records.

By signing up for property fraud alerts, Orange County residents will receive notification by email or telephone whenever a document with their name on it is recorded in Orange County.  This early notification can provide valuable time to stop criminals in their tracks.  Reviewing property records is an important way for residents to protect themselves from fraud.

Comptroller Diamond will also be hosting an informational session to discuss the program and important fraud prevention tips. Along with Comptroller Diamond, Sergeant Bell from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Economic Crimes Squad will also be presenting and answering any questions from the community.  The informational session will be on Tuesday, April 3 at 10 am in the Orange County Commission Chambers at 201 South Rosalind Avenue in Orlando. This event is free and open to the public.

“Too many Central Florida residents are victims of cybercriminals. This free new service will help Orange County residents protect themselves from property fraud,” stated Diamond.
