Property Fraud Alert
The Milwaukee County Register of Deeds offers a free online automated service in which property owners can sign up to have their name monitored so as to track possible fraudulent activity. Participants will be notified only when the exact name they have submitted to Property Fraud Alert (PFA) is listed as a grantor or grantee on a document recorded in the Register of Deeds office.
While PFA will not prevent fraud from happening, it provides an early warning system that will allow property owners to take appropriate action should they believe fraudulent activity has occurred with their property.
