The Property Fraud Alert system helps to protect a person’s property from fraud by monitoring documents such as liens, deeds, and mortgages that are recorded in Pasco County. Just like signing up to receive alerts on credit cards or identity protection, the Property Fraud Alert system provides peace of mind in knowing that your property is being monitored against the filing of fraudulent documents in the owner's name.

Customers determine the personal and business name(s) they want monitored and may choose to receive alerts through email or over the phone. Upon notification of a document recorded with the registered name(s), property owners may verify whether the activity was initiated by them or someone attempting to commit property fraud.

Registering for the Pasco County Clerk & Comptroller's fraud alert protection is free and easy by calling (800) 747-4600 or click the link below.
