Property Fraud Alert
Documentation Notification Program
Preventing mortgage fraud and identity theft is a top priority of your Kankakee County Recorder's office. The Recorder's office has made a conscious effort to be on the lookout for documents that may involve deed or mortgage fraud. For your protection, consider subscribing to our "FREE" Property Fraud Alert website for real-time monitoring and notification of any potential fraudulent activity. Your security does matter!
Unfortunately, it's all too easy for a criminal to record a fraudulent deed making it appear as if they now own your home.
Once they've done this, they can use your name as collateral on a mortgage or even attempt to sell your home to an unsuspecting buyer.
Don't let this happen to you!
