Deed fraud is quite easy
From CBS 2:
Con artists are easily stealing homes in New York City through “dirty deeds.”
As CBS2’s Steve Langford reported Monday night, scam artists are accessing homeowners’ deeds online and then putting these homes up for sale, entering into contracts with several unsuspecting buyers, and flipping it for a profit.
“As long as you have the address, that’s all you need,” Jason Reddish, real estate expert and chief executive officer of Total Merchant Resources, told CBS2.
