Robbing the dead — Notary style

Filed under: Drama & Tragedy — admin @ 11:06 pm

Yes, it is a common crime in Philadelphia as I am reading. People falsify deeds, and rob the dead of their property. This requires the use of a Notary or fake Notary or falsified Notary seals.

A new local law requiring photos of ID’s being used seems like a prudent step. Another tell-tale sign is a long gap between the signing of a document and its recording. Notaries are also checked by phone to make sure particular transactions are legitimate. Taking thumbprints of sellers has been proposed in Philadelphia, but not implemented yet. It is hard to forge a thumbprint and that seems like a very sensible fraud deterrent to me. There are other ways to regulate fraud, but those are a few main ones.
