This is my first comment ever. Seeing what other notaries are saying about this new NPN membership fee is what brought me here via a google search. I am glad most agree with my perspective. I would encourage ALL notaries to refuse to pay this membership fee.
This is a serious business, not a "Work-From-Home" Scam. If notaries are willing to PAY to get work, where will it end? Everyone will start doing it and that fee will go up... Every. Single. Year.
I am in a rural area between MN and IA and carry both commissions to stay busy. I already pay for those as well as yearly E/O Insurance, background checks, and MN Closers license, besides the normal ink, paper and fuel that we all pay. Lot of driving in my area, too.
I complained to SnapDocs as well, that they would allow themselves to be a party to such a practice. I hope others do the same. We should all draw a firm line or this will be the future.
