I was told that one of my Acknowledgements (a few days ago) was incorrect and that I needed to issue another one with the correction on it.
So I brought in the original docs and created a new certificate (with the current date on it) but the borrower would not sign the docs because it would delay funding and wanted me to back date the certificate. To make it short, the SS & the title company tried to get me to back-date the certificate but I refused. I explained that it would be crime to knowingly create and stamp a certificate I new to be false. The SS & the title company tried to convince me with arguments such as "we have several experienced notaries who say you can back-date the certificate because you made a mistake on the first one", the title company even thru in the argument that it was ok to backdate the certificate because my boss (the SS) told me to do so.
I stood my ground and they (the SS) told me to leave. Later, I called the Secretary of State (California) Notary division and was informed that I was indeed correct you cannot back-date a notary certificate.
