Official Records: Risk Alert Notification

According to the FBI, property fraud is one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes in the United States. Criminals file fake deeds or other land records to appear as if they own property that is not actually theirs, and then they deceive people into giving them money to buy or rent those homes.

The Collier County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller offers a free risk alert notification service to help property owners monitor their recorded property records for fraudulent activity.

Subscribers will be sent an email alert when a deed, lien, mortgage or other land record matching the subscriber's criteria has been recorded into the Official Records of Collier County.

Although this service does not prevent the actual fraudulent activity from occurring, it provides the subscriber an opportunity to verify whether the activity was initiated by them or by a scammer committing fraud.

To subscribe (or unsubscribe) to this free service:
  1. Enter the email address where you want to receive notification alerts.
  2. Click the “I’m not a robot” box and answer any questions when prompted.
  3. Click Send Email.
  4. You will be sent an email from “Collier Clerk of Courts: Risk Alert” with a link that allows you to add, edit, or delete party names and Official Records to monitor.

The Collier County Clerk of Courts assumes no liability related to the risk alert service. Email addresses and search criteria are subject to public records requests.

If you suspect you are a victim of fraud, contact the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 239-252-9300.
