My last name is spelled differently on occasion; how should I enter it?

To illustrate, let's use the last name "Van Buren" as our example. This name may at times be spelled with a space in it ("Van Buren") and at other times with no space ("VanBuren"). For cases like this, it is highly recommended that you make two separate subscription entries with both name variations. For the Property Fraud Alert system to work as intended, and for notification alerts to be sent, the last name spelling, or business name spelling of the subscription name must match exactly.
