Bernard Youngblood, Wayne County Register of Deeds, poses with an old deed registry book in Detroit, Wednesday, April 19, 2017. Youngblood recounted a case in his office, when a man came to file a quitclaim deed transferring ownership on a property. A clerk recognized the address and went to a co-worker with a question. "Are you selling your house to that guy?" she asked. She wasn't. Youngblood said he faked a computer outage, leaving the would-be fraudster waiting at the counter. It bought enough time to get deputies to respond and make an arrest. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)
