"Improperly notarizing a document is a violation of state law, ..."

It's Sunday night and I just finished printing the loan documents for a closing I have tomorrow morning.  I was actually amazed that the company was true to their word and sent me the documents in time.

As I was preparing for the closing, I came across this document -- a Notary Identification Statement.

It's asking me to break the law:

Notary Identification Statement

Did you spot it?  It has a place for my notary seal.  It's against the law for a notary to notarize their own signature.

But there's more.  Just below this is the following statement:

Improperly notarizing a document is a violation of state law

"Improperly notarizing a document is a violation of state law, any occurrence will be reported to the appropriate authorities."

Oh, they don't have to worry.  I have no intentions of violating any state laws.  And if they call and ask why I didn't stamp it, I'll quote them:

"Improperly notarizing a document is a violation of state law."
