Scammers tried to steal Graceland. Here's how to make sure they don't get your home

·1 min

Last month, a piece of American history was almost stolen through a fraudulent real estate scheme. Scammers claimed ownership of Graceland, the famous home of Elvis Presley, and attempted to auction it off. The sale was stopped by a Tennessee judge. While home title theft is a concern, it remains relatively rare. In 2020, there were 9,521 reported real estate scams, including title theft. These crimes have become easier to execute with the help of technology. To protect yourself, be cautious of fraudulent documents and consider monitoring services.
