Operation Fraud Guard

What is Fraud Guard? Fraud Guard is a simple way to help prevent property fraud. Register your name and when a document is recorded with your name, you will be notified via email.

As part of the Chester County Recorder of Deeds’ Anti-Fraud Initiative, the Recorder of Deeds Office is reviewing potential scenarios of real estate fraud and the statutes governing the RDO’s recording guidelines. Our office has observed that certain real estate transactions have been used to take advantage of elderly and/or disabled persons. In an effort to be proactive, the RDO will attempt to review certain documents deemed indicative of potential real estate fraud and will attempt to notify landholders of transactions against their property, as set forth in the policy.
