Congressman, Jackson County warn of rising deed fraud | #phishing | #scams | #hacking | #aihp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — You’ve heard of stolen cars, now Kansas City, Missouri is dealing with a new problem on the rise. Someone stealing your entire home.

Now that crime trend has the attention of Congress. Both Jackson County and federal officials Monday sounded the alarm that someone could pretty easily walk right through the Jackson County Recorder of Deeds Office and steal your home.

You work hard for maybe 30 years to pay off your home, but in a matter of moments it can be gone.

“If the average homeowner had any idea about how vulnerable they are there would be panic,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, D-Missouri, said.

Linda Peak knows that emotion. She went to sell her home only to find out according to documents at the Jackson County Recorder of Deeds she no longer owned it, she previously told FOX4 Problem Solvers.

“Did you sell the house and I said no and she says someone has stolen your house.”
