SHELL LAKE, WI — Washburn County Register of Deeds, Jessica Hedinger, is proud to offer a new, FREE service to all Washburn County property owners called Property Fraud Alert. Property Fraud Alert is a free online subscription service offered to the public that allows them to have their name monitored within the Recorder's office in order to track possible fraudulent recordings that affects their property.
The threat of mortgage fraud and identity theft crimes continue to rise, and all too often victims of these types of fraudulent activities are unaware their homes or identity have been stolen. While Property Fraud Alert does not prevent fraud from happening; it provides an early warning system for property owners to take appropriate actions should they determine possible fraudulent activity has taken place.
It's simple! Just enter your personal and/or business name, phone number or email, and you will be notified when a document is recorded with your name match via email, call, or text.
