POA - Proceed On AlertThe Power of Attorney is perhaps the “most powerful” of all notarized documents. Some might argue the most powerful is the Will. I disagree. Wills are probated by a Court, an extended legal procedure with notifications, attorneys, and a Judge involved. On the other hand, som...

Your Signature – Needs WorkNo, I’m not referring to that strange squiggle you have on file with your notary commission. I’m talking about your “other” signature. It’s the one that your email program adds at the end of virtually every email that you send. Well, I’m willing to bet that at least a h...

The “Switching” Durable Power of AttorneyDurable – this means the Agent “Might” have authority at any given moment.

Really Long Distance Venue FraudWe all know what the Venue is. It contains the State (or Commonwealth, etc) and the County (or Parish, etc.) of the notarization. Specifically, it documents where the notary (not the affiant in some cases) signed the document. If an Acknowledgement is being issued;...

Summonses in notary’s mailboxBaby Boomers will recall the well known summons from the Draft Board. It began with “Greetings, and went on to specify an appointment to visit them……”.
