For those who think Home Title Theft cannot happen, or will not happen to them, listen to this week's episode!
Jennie Restrepo, the Director of Implementation for Fraudshine State discusses the case of Linda Cleland, who was evicted from her free and clear childhood home in 2014.
Ms. Cleland was homeless for seven months and, after a three-year battle finally unwound the theft of her home and got back the title to her house.
The person who committed this crime served an eight-year prison sentence and then will serve fifteen years probation, but the hardship on Ms. Cleland was immeasurable.
Title insurance did not help her, the clerk of the court did not help her, and even the police were powerless to help Ms. Cleland.
Ultimately, the County prosecuting attorney was able to successfully record a document in the County public records to unwind all of the damage (including deeds and mortgage documents for many other people and properties, including Ms. Cleland).

Fraudshine might have prevented the loss of Ms. Cleland's house, had it existed back in 2014.
