Building a Wall Around Signing Companies


Signing companies are invading our territory. They’re lowering rates for signings, not paying people, and micromanaging the people doing signings.

We will build a wall around these signing companies. And let the signing companies not paying people on time pay for it. The good notaries will make good people sign their legible signatures on the wall. The bad notaries will turn to petty crime and write illegible graffiti on the wall.

In addition to the signing companies, too many new notaries are invading our territory, willing to do twenty dollar signings. They’re killers… of the marketplace by working for cheap. Others are executors… of documents that have something wrong with them. . Others are improperly backdating… Or allowing clients to sign incorrectly… They’re misidentifying people… They’re not administering oaths properly…

We will make notaries great again. They’ll become certified on 123notary.com. They’ll start winning again. Believe me, they’ll get so tired of winning, they’ll start losing their minds just to remember what losing feels like!

We’ll impose a temporary ban on all lousy notaries until we can figure out what the hell is going on. We’ll deport the notaries who aren’t doing their jobs back to where they came from, unless they’re already citizens, in which case we’ll export them to countries we’re not that crazy about. We’ll let them come back legally – by letting a competent notary make them swear they won’t screw things up the next time around.

And when that’s finished, we’ll build a wall around my mouth.

In answer to Bernie Sanders and Pink Floyd… We don’t need no (free) education! All in all it’s just another brick in the wall!

  2. Well, a lot of foreign born I’ve seen are better notaries than citizens. First of all they can read and write,usually in one or two other languages including English , where a lot of U S born obviously can’t even get a passing grade in English. Forget about learning a second language. 48 % is the drop out rate at least here in Californua.
    As for signing agencies: if you are new you will have to deal with them. Some are OK but few to none will pay 125. Or more. At 125. you will net about 65. It is not worth doing a high volume of assignments all for low pay. You run yourself ragged and discover you aren’t making money. Since I cut most signing sgencies out, life isn’t stressful and I enjoy doing signings again. By keeping a steady flow of newbies and running out experienced Notaries, that post will never gain the respect and pay that it implies.

  3. I live in a small town. I have one competitor. She will work for anything. $55- $65 for signings. I don’t care because I probably make more money than she does, while doing less signings and almost no faxbacks. It’s her loss.
