Staff Report

Los Alamo County Clerk Sharon Stover and her staff visited with citizens today at their booth at Ashley Pond Park.

They spoke about the upcoming 2016 Elections and offered voter registration services. With the 2016 Elections right around the corner, the Clerk’s Office also had a voting machine available for demonstration.

The Clerk’s Office also provided information and answered questions about FraudSleuth, a free online tool that helps prevent and detect possible fraudulent filings on resident’s property, by notifying citizens when documents are recorded against their name or property.

CountyFusion’s FraudSleuth tool aids in the detection of possible fraudulent activity regarding documents filed in the County offices where land records are maintained. Property fraud has become an increasingly common concern in the United States. According to the FBI, it is the fastest growing white collar crime. This crime can be unthinkable and devastating for homeowners.

The Los Alamos County Clerk’s Office wants to give constituents a way to prevent such acts and detect possible fraudulent activity on their property. The Los Alamos County Clerk’s Office has implemented FraudSleuth as part of the records search portal to protect citizen’s investments. Their goal is to prevent the loss of time, money and worries associated with correcting mortgage and deed fraud.

For information, contact the Clerk’s Office at 505.662.8010, email clerks@lacnm.us or visit the County Clerk webpage www.losalamosnm.us/clerk or like us on Facebook.
