House stealing is a relatively under-reported consequence of identity theft, and has happened to owner-occupied homes


An email from Quora (a site you can join and supply answers to questions and get followers) discusses the grim possibility of house stealing as a result of identity theft, major link here.

And the FBI has a little known link on the problem here.
 
The problem is more likely to occur with a vacant house, or even a rented one; but titles have been stolen even from owner-occupied homes.  It’s a good idea to check your local government’s land title records (which will show assessed valuation and property tax payments due sometimes) online periodically, even once a month if possible.
