Property Fraud Alert
About the Service
Property fraud is when someone illegally uses your property for financial gain. It occurs when someone records a fraudulent document in the County Recorder's office, making it look like they own your home or property.

According to the FBI, property and mortgage fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime. Blue Earth County has teamed up to create a notification service known as Property Fraud Alert.

Contact the Blue Earth County Taxpayer Service at (507) 304-4251 for additional details.
