Tier 1 Title complaint I recently signed for this company, scanned the entire package back, no errors, everything went smoothly, dropped the UPS package at Staples for next day delivery...all went fine. Two days later I received an email wondering where the docs were. I told them when and where I dropped the package and then even called Staples, spoke to the woman who took my package who remembered me and told me that she had scanned and gotten the package out that day in time. She also explained that at this time, due to covid, UPS was not guaranteeing next day delivery. I relayed this to Tier 1 and didn't hear back. When I got my check, it was $25 short. I emailed them about the mistake and was sent a very insulting, and vicious email calling me incompetent and unprofessional among other things. This was not my fault at all and along with insulting me, refused to pay the full fee. Stay away!! Michelle Gardner

Nationwide Signing Services, LLC Nationwide Signing Services, LLC 1050 E Ray Rd. Chandler, AZ 8525 Have worked for Charlie Camenzind for couple of years. Never had a payment issue that did get solve right away. On top of their business. Carol A. Herb Carol A. Herb 
Hi - just curious if there are any more recent experiences with Nationwide Signing Services. Thanks :) Paul  paulcr
I have been doing quite a few signings for this company since they are local to my area and have not had any issues with payments. Sometimes it's a distance to drop the docs to their designated drop location or to Title, which adds to the bottom line, but overall they are great to work with.[:)] Diana Larson  Dlarson
I have worked with Nationwide Signing Service for 4 years. I have found them to be exceptional in all areas, and a pleasure to work with. Never an issue with scheduling, payment or support, and the people wonderful. It's all good. Lee Goldenberg  goodyg5
Is Nationwide not paying? I have a couple signings from October (2 months ago) that haven't been paid.......and not response from emails ????  On the Go
I work with them, but very seldom do they pay without a reminder. I paste a letter with a list of signings and also send a copy of my invoice for each signing that is overdue. I usually am paid within 24 hours of sending the email. I attach the collection e-mail to the latest confirmation of the signing, so it has the file number in the subject line.  Doris_CO
I just received a check from them for a closing done on 3/11/2020. Today is 8/7/2020. That is 5 months, totally unacceptable. Previously I received a check on 8/1/2020, it was for two jobs done on 11/8/2019 and 2/19/2020. I am no longer accepting jobs from this company. Worst pay ever. [:(!]  20877

Have any Notaries tried a media break? Some of us are feeling depressed and choose to ignore the news for a few weeks. Have any of you tried this? Does it help?

Today I thought my computer crashed & died I got out of bed, and looked at the computer. The light was flashing on the top of the CPU box. Then, I got my Starbucks from the fridge (I asked if they had double shots by IV but, they said not yet) and then the light went out. I tried to start the computer but nothing worked. I plugged the computer into a different slot on my electronic extension but still no luck. I was sure I would have to buy a new machine. Then, I plugged it directly into the wall. My clock works on the extension chord, but not the computer. How odd. What a relief. Perhaps God is telling me to guy a backup computer just in case.

The Neighborly Legal Issue We had a Notary listed with us in New York who had a patented and trademarked business name included the term "Neighborly" and then another term which was a Notarial term. I will be cautious not to mention the exact term as this person's Attorney is very aggressive and will go after anyone who even breaths their name. Another Notary in Ohio registered and used this business name and used it in her email as well. The Attorney went after my server company who contacted several of my programmers who contacted me. I was told that my entire site might be taken offline if I didn't comply with removing that business name from the Ohio listing. I don't know who is right or wrong or what the law says about this issue. But, I am not going to mess around with people this intimidating. So that is it for now.  
Wow! What's in a name, huh? Another 'scare story' from long ago... A notary had found/copied a picture of a pen online & used it on her website. Seemed it was copyrighted--which she didn't realize at the time. A few months later, she received a letter from an attorney and was forced to pay a couple hundred dollars for using it. And, no, she couldn't just replace the photo as she had used it. Be careful out there!

Fake police scam targeting Notaries! Scammers pretending to be law enforcement are threatening Notaries with jail sentences if they don't pay a bond or fine of thousands of dollars.

Indiana notary law impacts signings A mortgage or an instrument of writing to be recorded must be acknowledged by the grantor AND proved before one of the several listed officials including a Notary Public. The verbiage used to say OR where the new verbiage has the word AND which changes the meaning and creates complications. Read the NNA article for details. https://www.nationalnotary.org/notary-bulletin/blog/2020/06/indiana-law-error-notarizing-real-property-docs

Nobody buys the fluff you say about yourself When I edit Notary notes sections, Notaries say how great they are, reliable, trustworthy, and error free. Nobody believes this even if it is true. Stick to more warm and fuzzy text explaining what you are like without trying to prop yourself up. And hard facts about your service will sell too. Less fluff, more information. Be conscious about how the readers feel, and they hate to read fluffy non-information, and they tend not to click on those types of Notaries.

She became a RON, but didn't like it One of our Notaries became a remote online Notary. She got clients, but the issues with cameras and other technical difficulties made it like pulling teeth to get anything done and make any money. So, that is one account. We are getting more and more online notaries on our site. I'm not sure if they make any money at it, but at least they are offering the service.

"Carmen taught me more than any of my classes" One Notary told me over the phone that Carmen taught her more useful information about the Notary profession than she learned in all of her classes combined. But, Carmen is no longer alive. I don't think there will ever be another Carmen. Nobody combines the personality, style and practical knowledge like her. So, from now on I will try to function myself and might find another helper or too as time goes on. Wish me luck.  
So sorry to hear the sad news about Carmen. Never had the opportunity of speaking with her personally, but know of many others who did and felt the same way you do. You were pretty young when you started 123Notary and built it into the absolute best directory ever. It was and still is the most 'unlimited' one around. Good luck in the future.

Carmen offered mentoring, emotional support and sales support with finesse to the Notaries. No other Notary organization had anyone with her pizzazz, knowledge or personality. I will never find anyone else who is like her or anywhere near as good. But, I will do my best to offer some support to Notaries. I'm always slow by email though.   jbelmont

Jeremy's 51st birthday Tomorrow is my birthday. I have no plans except perhaps to get an Australian Lamb Meat Pie downtown. They are a commercial baking company so I would have to eat it on the trunk of my car. But, I heard they are yummy and love lamb. I wanted to go somewhere for my birthday. Since I will be 51, I thought of going to Area 51 in Nevada to see some UFO's. But, on second thought, I have been there before and there is nothing there. -- at least nothing that can be seen with the naked eye.  
Belated Happy Birthday to you! [:)] Hope you got/enjoyed the Lamb Pie...even if you did have to eat it on your car trunk. Sorry I missed the actual date.

I think that next week I will have time to wander around downtown to get lamb pie. I typically do my downtown wandering once a month or so. I'm not sure how it will be with all the restrictions. But, it will be fun to see. My housemate / friend drove up to Idaho with her crew and they will be back in a few days and we will have festivities hopefully.   jbelmont

California Notaries - Join the CLIN! Iím writing to announce that I have formed a non-profit advocacy group for California Notaries. The California League of Independent Notaries (CLIN) is the first and only advocacy organization in CA requiring all members to be commissioned notaries that strives to promote public awareness and advocate for California Notaries by building community, providing communication and lobbying for policy that strengthens the Office of Notary Public and represents members common interests. As you know, over the last two years I have worked to give independent notaries a voice in Sacramento and have proven that together we can be a powerful lobby. You have probably heard about a couple bills this year that directly affect notaries in CA, but did you know that there are actually 18 bills this session that either directly or indirectly affect California Notaries? As legislative issues concerning notaries continue to pop up year after year, California Notaries need a voice in Sacramento now more than ever and the CLIN will be that voice! Join today at: [url]http://calnotaries.org/join[/url] 
Way to go, Matt! At last, a CA group that actually advocates for notaries concerns! Wish you much success (and hope that your success will cause notaries in other states to emulate it).
