Once upon a time, there was a man who didn’t want to sign with his middle initial.
This man was very uncomfortable using his middle initial and protested vehemently.
He wanted to use his regular signature to protect himself from identity fraud. He felt that signing in a slightly different way would make him succeptable to identity fraud.
During the initial signing, he was forced against his will to sign with his middle initial. This was during the time when he was doing a purchase on the property. Then, several years later on the refinance signing, the notary explained how he wouldn’t get his money if he didn’t sign with his middle initial.
No initial — No $200,000 — it’s that simple.
So, after a little coaxing, the signer did what the notary asked, and signed using his middle initial, and all went well.
And everyone lived happily ever after
