Hello. Here is a thread exclusively about scammers targeting notaries to either trick them into downloading and infecting their computer/ phone for marketing/ theft of id, or phishing or various other nefarious purposes.
Watch out of any email offers of jobs from strange email / persons with no other details.
Watch out of emails offers that sound generic.
Watch out for email from address/ people who have no email signature (such as phone/company name/fax / website)
Always research them or do a quick google search on name of person or email they sending from etc.
Just use your common sense and your gut feeling. Do Not get caught in the moment.
Here is a story as how i strung along a person which probably happens to be a scammer trying to pull a fast one.

NO TIME , NO SIGNING ADDRESS , Nothing. Just click on link ( and get screwed)
