Summary A 41 Action News investigation uncovered a widespread real estate fraud scheme in the Kansas City area, comprised of forged signatures of both the living and the dead. The investigation exposed how the crime is “shockingly easy” to pull off, leaving victims to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees to fix the damage one forged signature can cause. The ongoing reports later discovered potential changes to Missouri state law that could help thwart the problem of stealing homes.
