Subscribe to fraud alerts
Property and identity fraud are a nationwide problem. By filing fake deeds, scammers appear to own property, and can fraudulently rent or sell the property without the knowledge of the true owner. Your Clerk and Comptroller, Karen E. Rushing, offers tools to help you protect yourself, and issues alerts about schemes where impersonators act like Clerk or Comptroller employees in an attempt to defraud citizens. By signing up for the Clerk and Comptroller’s Property Fraud Alert Service, you will receive an email whenever a document is recorded in Sarasota County using your personal or business name. Notifications are sent within 48 hours of the document being recorded, alerting you so you can look up the documents through public records, or dispute through law enforcement. Registration is simple and free.
