“When doing a notarization at a California jail over the past few years, they often have you stamp your seal on the back of their visitation form to prove you are a notary—but of course that is not legal. Last week I did a jail signing and they asked for my original commission letter: if you do a jail signing in CA, you now need to bring in your original commission letter –per the Attorney General’s Office. June, 2012.”
123notary’s experience is:
If you stamp the jail entry piece of paper, you can always cross it out which voids the stamp. It might not be considered illegal if it is voided.
