Answer:

If you are concerned that you are the victim of identity theft, you may want to file a police report, and contact and file a complaint with the Arizona Attorney General's Office. You may also want to review the identity theft repair kit that is distributed through the Attorney General's Office because it gives you a step by step guide to what to do if you think your identity has been stolen. Also, note that If a home is purchased in Phoenix Arizona, the documents will usually be available on the Maricopa County Recorder's Office website and the Maricopa County Assessor's office.
