CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Federal Bureau of Investigations is sharing a warning about a crime epidemic that could impact most homeowners.

It’s called house stealing, or deed fraud. According to the FBI, it’s one of the fastest-growing white-collar crimes in America.

“It’s something that I think people really aren’t aware of. They think maybe their homeowner’s policy or their identity theft protection will cover this – it doesn’t,” said retired FBI Agent Art Pfizenmayer. “If you own a home and you have any equity, you’re potentially a victim. And it’s really a random thing.”

Thursday at 6 a.m. on WBTV News, we explain how house stealing works and how homeowners can protect themselves.
