I’m very new and green to notary work and loan signing. So, anytime I get contacted for work I’m really excited. I recently received a text message about completing a signing in my local area. They stated that it was for a one page document. I asked if it was regular notarization or loan, to which they replied a “Deed”. I asked what was the time frame needed and they said, it was open to the signer and contingent upon me (The notary) receiving the check. They asked how much I would charge, and I told them and they agreed. They sent the document to be signed via email, which is normal. I did receive a check in the mail from the company for the signer. I didn’t think too much about them not asking for my address to deliver the check, because I’ve signed up for so many signing services. They never referenced a signing service or anything. I looked the company up on BBB and they have an F and a couple of bad reviews. This just feels like one of those check fraud scams. Is this normal for the company to send the check to the notary to give to the signer? What would an experienced signer do in this situation?
LandTRUST USA is the company if you’re wondering.
