Scanning bar codes on an ID in Washington State?

Filed under: Business Tips — admin @ 9:06 am

This is the first I have ever heard of this. There is an app where a person can scan an ID and see if it is legit. If you are a Notary, your worst nightmare is a fake ID (or an unattractive client who has the hots for you, not necessarily in that order.) Well, now you can scan their ID and see if their ID is real.

Keep in mind that even someone with a real ID can be an imposter because there are often many people with the same name. I ran into a Pamela Anderson who was not the one on babe watch… I mean Bay Watch. Imagine how many John Smith’s there are. Sometimes I think the guy on Taxi had a point when he changed his name to Ignatowski. That is more unique than Smith.

Why don’t you Notaries look into this app, as it could be a life saver for Notaries and a life ender for frauds!
