Oct Best Signing Company Gossip

Filed under: Popular Signing Co. Lists,Signing Company Gossip — Tags: , — admin @ 1:05 am

Here is some of the best signing company gossip that we’ve had for the last half year.

Locate Notary
A Notary registered with Locate Notary. She had responded to an email from them about a Notary assignment. The company sent an email promising to send them the necessary information within an hour. However, the information never came. Then the Notary asked to be removed from their list. Nothing happened. The fee was $150, so she didn’t want to give up the assignment…
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4915

Sunshine Connection
The notary claimed this company had a “new” method of payment. But, there were four jobs that were not paid for. The checks had allegedly been sent. However, the checks were in the email attachment which the Notary never checked as he was checking snail mail. Bizarre!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6994

US Notary Service
One notary claims they have many stories for non-payment.
#1 Wrong paypal address
#2 They had an alleged paypal receipt
#3 Claims they mailed the check. Notary called back in a week. They claim they are sending it.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5678
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5562

SnapDocs
You can’t download the documents unless you agree to the terms of the particular signing service. But, what if you don’t agree with the terms?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6962

Bankserve
A Notary was accused of using the wrong documents at the signing. But, the Notary did not send themselves the documents. The documents were sent to them. Unless there were two versions of the same documents. Hmmm.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4302

Premiere Notary Service
Scroll down to April 11th. This company offered a Notary additional work when an outstanding invoice that was 60 days late had still not been paid! Amazing!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5739

Timios Title
Timios is one of the all-time favorite Title Companies out there. But, a few Notaries claim that they used to love Timios more before the mass emailing system and the lower price jobs started happening!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4907

Signature Closers – OH
Payment is always direct deposited on the 5th, even if the job done was the last day of the previous month!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4901

Meymax Title
The loan officer upset the borrowers and the Notary was blamed! The borrowers were angry that the LO didn’t give them all of the pertinent information. Additionally, there was a written agreement for a $50 cancellation fee.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6950

Title Source
One Notary loves the weekly deposit system Title Source is using. It is just like a pay check just as long as you don’t make mistakes. This Notary claims Title Source is their bread and butter.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6035

Find out how a job involving 275 pages. The notary accepted, then declined the job. Then a happy salesman called the Notary and tried to sweet talk him. Did the notary mistake them for another company?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7033

Premier Notary Service
One Notary says this company resolves issues fast. Jeremy was polite and conscientious and took care of everything. Not the same Jeremy as me though. I take at least 48 hours to resolve anything!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7040

Mortgage Connect LP
One Notary want to blackball this company and get them shut down. This Notary wants to network with other Notaries at the annual conference to find a way to force Title companies to pay up. Do you think he/she will succeed?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3430

FASS
One notary is upset that this company calls in orders that are too far away. Then, the Notary claims that docs are always late and that $75 is not enough. Boy oh boy!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2829

Notary on the Run
The accountant is only there twice a month, but the invoice was 90 days old.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5681

Speedy Closings
The Notary was to get $40 for printing and travel. Now, the Notary wants to go to small claims court to collect.
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2345

Skysail Group
Their website keeps track of all your signings online and you can access it by mobile phone!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6058

Nations Direct
The check was sent to AR, not AZ. This Notary used to like Nations Direct, but they started paying her more — and that’s when the punctuality of the payments became an issue.

Best Signing Co. Gossip!

(1) There were six signers!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4481
One Notary claimed: This Avenue 365 signing was supposed to be a standard refinance. But, the signing had six signers while the confirmation only mentioned two signers. “When I asked them to adjust my fee due to the fact there were six signers (which meant more work) the answer was a resounding no! Then, I went to another signing with them and there was an error on the documents. I called to ask for the documents to be redrawn and resent the next day. When the next day arrived and when I called them, I was told that the file had not been assigned to me and the person on the other line said,” “Why are you calling?”

(2) $20 loan signings. Maybe it’s time to raise your minimum?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6904
One Notary claims: “Some of the N3 Notary jobs were so close, that I did them for $20. But then, after there were so many cancellations, I raised my minimum to $50.”

(3) Sorry, we can’t pay you due to errors
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6899
One Notary claims Signing Stream will agree to your fee, and then doc your pay and claim that some type of errors were made.

(4) 200 page packages
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6817
One Notary claims: Pacific Document Signings tried to claim that the package was 175 pages, when they are usually close to 200 pages in the Notary’s experience. And they want to pay $70 for eDocuments? Another Notary wants to know what “local” means. $85 for local? How close are we talking about?

(5) Paid on time for 3 signings, but what about the other 6?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5317
One Notary claims to have been paid on time for the first 3 signings by Paramount Signature Services, but the next six never got paid for!

(6) $45 Debt Settlements & $15 print fees?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5192
One Notary was offered $45 for a Debt Settlement from Professional Settlements Services. Another was offered $15 print fee if the borrower backs out. How generous! Can I work for them too?

(7) A closeline of signings where the Notary was left out to hang!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6278
One Notary claims that Write n Roll promised a “clothesline” of closings from a particular vendor. But, since the Notary refused to drive a 120 radius for $100, they were left “hanging” (no pun intended.) Did this Notary get taken to the cleaners?

(8) A sadistic way of collecting what’s due!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2397
Notaries were complaining about not getting paid on time by American Signing Connection, LLC. Then, Ken recommended a very devious way to collect from companies that don’t pay on time. Locate the number that they talk to their clients (not the one they use to talk to the Notary.) Fax your invoice multiple times to that number which will tie up the line and get their attention. Another Notary claimed that she was deceived about the package size and that at the signing, many documents were missing that she was asked to back at a later date to sign for free.

(9) 25 pages to fill out + fax backs? No thanks!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3430
One notary was told by Mortgage Connect LP there would be no fax backs. The package had 25 pages to be filled out in addition to fax backs. The Notary declined the job and informed their Attorney associated with the assignment.

10) 1 hour to find the lost docs & 2 more to finish the signing that never gets paid!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2380
During a signing from American Freedom Assurance, Inc., the Notary waited around for over an hour while the customer located the documents and another two hours to complete the signing. He was promised payment within three weeks. The person who made that promise was reported to be, “No longer at that company.” Payment had to be “approved.” 70 days later the Notary demanded payment plus a late fee. Do you think they will get it? Nobody responded to the email.

(11) 4 last minute cancellations + errors on the signing & the redraw!
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6719
The Notary claimed there were four last minute cancellations from Pac Doc Sign. Then, there were errors on the documents. The notary corrected the errors per the request of the signing company. When the borrowers saw the botched paperwork, they refused to sign. Then, new documents were prepared and after the Notary made a 70 mile round trip to the signer a second time – The numbers were found to be all wrong. Good grief!

(12) I quoted him $160, but they said I had already agreed to $115?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2436
Nation’s Direct certainly has developed a new way of negotiating since I worked for them! Maybe agreements should be in writing to avoid all of this he said she said nonsense.

(13) They want you to pay an $18 application fee after you hit submit?
http://www.123notary.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3170
Firma Signing Solutions paid one Notary quickly, but others are wondering about low offers and application fees.
