Property fraud on the rise in York County: Sheriff William King is warning residents about a growing problem of fraud in which scammers use fake or stolen identification to sell land they don’t own. “In York County, there have been 12 separate occasions where a seller impersonator tried to sell a victim’s land,” King said this week. However, York County is not alone. Property fraud is occurring in other Maine counties as well. To combat fraud, a bill has been introduced in the State House that would require identity verification before a deed can be transferred. The bill would also raise deed fraud to a felony, make it easier for property owners to nullify a fraudulent sale, and call for the creation of a campaign to raise awareness of the issue among real estate agents and registrars of deeds throughout the state. Property owners can help themselves by signing up for the free Property Fraud Alert service offered by the Registry of Deeds in York County. The service sends an email notification to the property owner when a document is recorded at the registry with the owner’s name. To sign up, go here.
