Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell today announced the establishment of a free on-line Consumer Notification Service to protect Norfolk County property owners against potential property fraud.
“The F.B.I. has reported that property and mortgage fraud is one of the fastest growing white collar crimes in America. Many jurisdictions across the country have reported individuals recording fraudulent documents making it look like they own another person’s home or property. While we have been fortunate that this problem has not manifested itself in Norfolk County, I want to make sure my office is out in front of this issue,” noted Register O’Donnell.
