Nevada Public Records and Identity Theft
How To Protect Yourself - Your Identity and Your Privacy!


EDUCATIONAL: As you know bankruptcy filings, marriage certificates, birth and death certificates, divorce, property quitclaim deeds, grant deeds, Homesteads, Declaration of Value are all Public Records. They are often now available on the internet from your County Assessors website. When you sign any notarized document for recording, they are microfiched, scanned, filed etc. Eventually, they will all be posted on their respective website(s) for public viewing. Just like California, Arizona and many other States, Nevada and the Las Vegas Valley are no different. It started here in September of 1999 and everyone that has bought or refinanced any type of home in Clark County will eventually be found online. What's not commonly understood, is that the entire document is available to the public. This includes all of your signatures, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, Bank information and even VIN numbers.
