A job was posted for $40.00 as a Pace signing. I have done a lot of different signings but I have never seen a pace signing before so I questioned by reply what a Pace signing was. The job was sent out again as a “Single Doc Signing” for $40.00. I accepted. Join me down this rabbit hole if you will.
The job was resent out as a “single doc signing”. This was the pace explanation, I was guessing. I accepted the assignment for $40.00, a single doc signing. I received a text message from First Class saying thanks for your availability for a small signing with scans. My thanks followed. I get a notification that the docs are posted. 5 downloads??? For a 1 page doc?? It is 48 pages in total!! I text the person back. Hey, I can NOT do a 48 pg. signing printing 96 pages for $40.00. That is the same size as a Seller’s Pack, please increase to $95.00. Crickets…So, I called. I spoke with a nice woman who was very understanding, saw the description and DECEPTION and stated she did not know how many pages it was because that is how title sent it over but agreed it was truly more than a 1 page doc. We settled on $75.00 for the 48 page (times 2 ) fax back. Acceptable.
I print the docs and text the customer that I would contact them in the morning because it was well after 10 p.m. so I didn’t call.
Signing Day- On my way back to scan in my 1st job from a different company, I get a message that Gabby representing Pace Signing and Low-Class signing, my mistake, First Class Signings has reduced my fee to $50.00 because it is a “translated package that doesn’t require your stamp”. Well, well, Gabby, to whom I responded:
“It is a very deceptive practice, bait and switch, to send the job out as a 1-page signing them send 48 pages to be copied 2 times at 96 pages, with fax backs. $75.00 was negotiated and I accepted and printed the 96 pages. All I ask for is honesty and transparency. I was promised $75.00 not $50.00 which was changed this morning.” Crickets…So I called and was transferred to Julia. A VERY ARGUMENTATIVE, CONDESCENDING person who told me to prove the text said it was a single doc or 1 page signing. She insisted I send her the screenshot of the message. But, was reading me ALL of the messages that were sent to and from me to them. Note, not one time did Julia read where it said 1 document signing but told me nothing could be changed once it is in the system after I told her it must have been changed. She Kept saying “send me the screenshot” over and over again. Question, who screenshots each job request? Answer- I do when it is a company that is questionable or I have had some weird dealing with in the past and this describes them. So, I DO HAVE THE SCREENSHOT OF THE JOB SAYING “1 DOCUMENT SIGNING”! I have all of the supporting documentation from Snapdocs, $40.00 increased to $75.00 decreased to $50.00, and all of the text messages. I am trying to figure out how to upload it here. This convo was long and useless. Talking to her was like being in a loop of bad dreams. Julia stated that Gabby knows this new company inside and out and they can’t even afford to pay $50.00 to a Notary yet Gabby reduced my fee to $50.00. Julia’s ignorance is not blissful she just wanted to fight loud and wrong. I was removed from the job without as much as a text notification, rightly so because at this point, all I wanted was a print fee. But, check out the disregard for my time and supplies.
Notary Beware! This was not my 1st off-putting experience with Low Class but it is hopefully my last (awaiting my print fee). Companies who don’t value your time, supplies, and position stay clear away from! Their motto is oh, just get another Notary they are a dime a dozen. You are licensed, bonded, insured, and well-trained. Know your worth and do not allow these companies to treat you like trash. If we begin to stand up and demand our fees be paid fairly, we will be treated better as a profession.
