With the increasing threat of mortgage fraud and identity theft, Hamilton County Recorder Trini Beaver and the Recorders Association of Indiana are urging residents to take advantage of the FREE Property Fraud Protection available to them. Over 72,000 Hoosiers have already signed up for this crucial service, providing an early warning system for property owners to detect and address potentially fraudulent activities.

"Your property is likely the most significant investment you'll ever make, and we want to help you safeguard it," Beaver says. "By signing up for property fraud protection, you are taking a proactive step to stay ahead of criminals who prey on property owners."

The Recorder's Association of Indiana recently launched a public awareness campaign to educate residents across the state about the importance of Property Fraud Protection and encourage them to take advantage of the free service offered by county Recorders.

Property Fraud Protection acts as an early warning system, allowing property owners to take appropriate actions promptly if suspicious activity is detected. It also ensures that recorded documents are legitimate and provides individuals with notifications confirming that their documents have been properly recorded.
