Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg Fights Fraud with Free Program
NORRISTOWN – Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds Jeanne Sorg today encouraged Montgomery County residents to sign up for FraudSleuth, a free monitoring program through her office that helps protects their properties from thieves and forgers.
"With heightened concerns about fraud in neighboring counties, the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office wants to ensure that we partner with homeowners to protect one of their most valuable assets—their properties," Sorg said. "We have a free monitoring program called FraudSleuth that will alert homeowners when any documents are recorded against their property."
FraudSleuth, is available to any Montgomery County homeowner. Similar to credit-monitoring services that are widely available today, FraudSleuth sends e-mail alerts to participating homeowners when any documents are recorded in their name or against a property.
"Montgomery County may not experience real estate fraud as frequently as other counties, but we want to be proactive in preventing any widespread issues," Sorg said. "That is why we are proud to offer this program to all Montgomery County homeowners, free of charge."
If you are a Montgomery County homeowner who would like more information about FraudSleuth, please call the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office at 610-278-3289 or visit www.montcopa.org/rod.
Jeanne Sorg assumed the office of Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds in 2016. She serves as a member of the Property Records Industry Association, the Montgomery Bar Association Realtor Liaison Committee, and the Legislative and Conference committees of the Pennsylvania Recorder of Deeds Association (PRODA).
