The Register’s office was happy to see everyone who came to the city of Knoxville’s Neighborhood Resource Fair this last weekend. It was a good turnout, and we were able to spread the message about our Property Fraud Alert Program. We were thrilled to hear that so many of you have already signed up! If you have any questions about this program or want to sign up, I’ve included the link at the end of the article.
