Property fraud is one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes in the United States. Fraudulent sales and/or fraudulent mortgages are filed every day. If you are a victim of property fraud, it can take years and a lot of money to get your property records corrected. Big Stone County is pleased to offer a service that notifies you every time a document with your name on it is recorded in our office. It's called Property Fraud Alert, it's simple, it's FREE, and you can sign up for this service at https://www.propertyfraudalert.com.
We frequently have inquiries about social security cards. Unfortunately, since we are a county office and replacing or correcting social security cards is a federal matter, I suggest you check https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp. You will be able to enter your zip code to find the social security office nearest you. Our office does have an Application for a Social Security Card form, along with instructions for replacing or amending your social security card. You also can contact the social security office at their toll free phone number: 800.772.1213.
Thank you for allowing us to be of service to you!
