House stealing is a combination of two popular rackets, identity theft and fraud.
In house stealing, the perpetrator assumes the homeowner’s identity and, using fake IDs, files transfer deeds with the proper authorities. Once the deed is transferred, they are free to sell or mortgage the property, all without the knowledge of the actual homeowner.
