Identity Theft and how Notaries help prevent it
21 August 2019
With identity theft and document fraud on the rise globally, protecting your identity is more important now than ever before. The role of the Notary Public is more important than ever. Did you know that?
Only a notarized document can effectively guarantee the identity of anyone who signs a document. The Notary Public will verify two pieces of valid photo ID, verbally confirm the identity of the person signing the document, and ask the individual to confirm the document they are signing.
A notarized document is a sign to anyone processing or reviewing the document which says “The person named on this document actually signed it.” This helps reduce the chance that a document has been forged or fraudulently executed by someone else.
