These people are the worst. Very low pay, slow pay and high expectations for reporting status over and over again. Never again

I will not take assignments from this company. They have continually deducted $5.00 off of my $60.00 fee, which included faxbacks. Each time they have some excuse why they are deducting from my fees.
Bad signing co. to work for. They also take over 60 days for payment.

I have finally been paid, so I can now post my experience. The short version is: I will not do a signing for this company again unless I get paid in advance.

Roland called me from SigningStream in August 2015 for a same-day closing. I read the reviews here about long delays in payment, and then told Roland that I would take the job only if he could guarantee I would be paid within 30 days. He assured me that he could, so I dropped everything, printed out the hundreds of pages they sent (as seven different documents), and headed to the signing at the customer's home.

Half an hour into the signing, the doorbell rang. It was a local attorney who had also had been hired to conduct the signing, and had a complete set of documents with her!

I finished the signing and made the necessary report (you must report signing complete within 1 hour) and faxbacks.

30 days went by and no payment. I contacted Roland and he said he didn't know why there was a delay, but payment would be made soon. This turned out to be incorrect.

I continued to follow up weekly, and signingstream continued to say that the check would be mailed "very soon." Each time I was told this, it was untrue.

Finally, 63 days after the closing, I got a call from someone at SigningStream saying that my fee was too high. The caller said they don't normally pay that much and asked me to justify why my fee was so high. I could not believe that after they kept me waiting more than two months for payment, they were calling to question the fee that they had agreed to for the same-day signing! I simply explained that that is my minimum fee for a signing with faxbacks. After this phone call, it still took another ten days after that to receive the check.

I won't do another signing for them unless I get paid ahead of time.

Have rceived a couple calls from these people offering $60 for a closing. I couldn't help but laugh in the poor girl's ear. I negitiated it up to $85 was then told there would be fax-backs to check my work. Told them no thanks, and that they might be better off looking for novice notaries and to leave me alone.

Very bad experience. Did a closing for them 2 months ago. The Lender was "Cash Call" Mortgage. Called to demand payment and was told they are still waiting to be paid by their lender. Contacted "Cash Call Mortgage" and was told they paid Signing Stream over a month ago. Signing Stream does not pay and obviously has serious financial problems that causes them to float the notary's fees like they do. I personally recommend that you DO NOT accept any signings from this company as you will have to fight for your fee. Look closely and you will see that they operate exactly like a Ponzi Scheme. They use current signing fees paid by lenders to pay the oldest and most vocal "past-due" signing fees owed.

how many times do I have to tell them not to call me again. Called again wanting an evening appt. for double loan package, 18 miles away, that they want to pay 60. each for. print 2 sets, fax backs etc. Of course they promised large volume of work- a promise I used to fall for 17 years ago, never is true anyway. I told them even if they did give me huge volume, it isn't worth running myself ragged for and making nothing on it. WE ARE NOT RETAILERS SELLING PENCILS OR GOODS BY THE DOZEN OR THE GROSS- WE ARE OFFERING HIGH QUALITY SERVICE EVERY TIME, THIS IS NOT DISCOUNTED.

I wish to say that I have never had a good experience with Loan-Closers and now that they have gone to this new payroll system, it has gotten worse. TWICE I have had fees posted to my bank account for stop payment on their end. I am done with them

Never pay an application fee! You should never pay to apply for employment. They are just ripping you off.

My Experience with Signing Stream has been all positive, the schedulers respond to my inquiries quickly and intelligently and like I said in an earlier post if the docs are slow in coming it is the fault of the lender but Support at Signing Stream have always been on top of the issue.

I have to agree with Gloria Cunning's comment. I have been working with Signing Stream for 14 months now. They have a 60 pay period, and they have never missed a payment. In the beginning, I made one mistake, I lost money, but it was my fault. The lender found the mistake, not Signing Stream. This has forced me to look very closely at all my documents before I submit them.

We treat each other with professionalism and courtesy. If I have an issue, I have a friendly conversation with them and we all walk away happy. For example, I had a day where two of their assignments in one day refused to sign due to lender mistakes. I asked them if there was any way they could give me additional funds for my time and they totally agreed that two refusals in one day was not the norm and also agreed to give me more money for my time. I am a VIP notary with them. I've proved myself to be reliable, not make mistakes, and professional to work with. In return they give me as many signings as they can. I know firsthand how valuable our time and skills are and Signing Stream has not let me down so far.

I used to not have to do faxbacks, but some of the other VIP notaries started sub-contracting out the signings. So now, due to other notaries not following Signing Stream's policies, I have to go back to doing faxbacks.

I will continue to do business with Signing Stream, and no, I am not a ringer.

I have never had a bad experience with Signing Stream and also have been paid within their required time frames. If you show respect and do a professional job, review your documents and follow through with instructions required by the lender/signing company you should not have a problem. You need to be accountable for your own actions. Please remember that you are a Public Servant and do so with all respect and that includes comments.
Thank you Signing Stream for your continued business and professionalism and looking forward to working with you in 2014.
Respectfully.

I just want to voice my two cents on this company..I did one signing for them and it took three months to get paid and then 5.oo short for fax backs that I sent. This little trick did not work for them for a second signing so be aware....they emailed me and told me they had issued a check for my money and it was on the way..next day they called and asked me to do another job..I turned it down unless they wanted to pay upfront and of course that didn't happen! But that check they mailed the day before the second call arrived in almost three weeks...looolll Stupidity reigns with this company!
The old adage that the check is in the mail nooottt!

Signing Stream is behind a new website called badnotary.com. They have already posted 11 complaints against notaries, including me. I signed up for their website and wrote a rebuttal to their libelous accusations, but they refused to post it. In fact, today they changed the website so notaries couldn't even sign up to participate. They are only allowing loan companies and signing companies to sign up and post complaints. They have also removed the names of the signing companies that listed the first 10 complaints (7 were from SigningSTream and 3 from Loan-Closers.com)

Since then I've found that both signingstream and badnotary use the same hosting company, GoDaddy. badnotary was created on March 14, 2013, and the first complaint was listed the very next day by Signing Stream. I checked their IP addresses, and they are 1 digit different from each other, denoting that they are on the same LAN, just different computer terminals.

Here is the business information for SigningStream in case anyone needs it:

Signing Stream, Inc
Entity # C3517722
940 South Coast Drive #205
Costa Mesa CA 92626

Agent for service: Jennifer Lindquist
6600 Warner Ave #68
Huntington Beach CA 912647

I believe one of the owners is Henry Jawhary
http://henryjawhary.com/

Henry Jawhary, CEO of Search Respect

Henry Jawhary is the Founder and CEO of Search Respect an online reputation management company based in Irvine, California.

http://www.linkedin.com/in/henryjawhary
(Scroll to the bottom...Signing Stream is a company he "follows.")

I have sent complaints to the Secretary of State, the National Notary Assoc., and the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

It is my understanding that they monitor these notary forums.



And they don't want anyone to speak badly of them?
