We are pleased to announce that in an effort to better protect the citizens of Okaloosa County, you may now enroll for free in our fraud alert system. According to the FBI, property fraud is a fast-growing crime in the United States where scammers file false documents to make it appear that they own your home or mortgage.
By signing up for the Fraud Alert system, if a document such as a deed or mortgage is recorded in the Official Records of the Clerk of Circuit Court & Comptroller’s Office with your name or business name you will receive an electronic notification containing information regarding that recording including a link for you to review the document. It is the sincere belief of your Clerk that this offers the best protection available under the current laws to prevent identity theft through the use of the Official Records.
