Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
You can write to the Recorder's Office and notify them that you are concerned about potential fraud regarding this entity and your property - but unfortunately, there isn't a specific procedure to go about protecting yourself from what might happen.
At this point in time all that has occurred is that you have received documents offering to purchase your property.
What you can do is send back correspondence to them notifying them that you are in receipt of their offer and that you reject the unsolicited offer. (If you fear that they may be trying to obtain your signature, you do not need to actually sign the document).
If you think that this is a very high threat (you say you have done some research on this company and they appear to have actually forged names, etc.) you can retain a local attorney for the sole purpose of responding to reject their offer - all you are paying for is for them to write a letter (from a law firm) rejecting their unsolicited offer. This can go a long way towards stopping this kind of conduct because you no longer will appear as an easy target for them. Most local attorneys will only charge a nominal fee for this kind of service and some may be willing to do so for free.
Yes, you can. You do not require an attorney in Florida to respond to them (all you really need is a little bit of leverage to show that you are on top of your property management and ownership rights, and that they need to go elsewhere if they hope to get easy title to someone's property).
