|New Signing Agent|
|By Karen Belcher on 6/22/18 6:23am |
Hello! I am a new notary signing agent in Virginia. I went thru the signing central section of this site and signed up to be a notary for a lot of companies. What else can I do to generate business? I am on snap docs. Thanks!

Since the majority of my closings are done in the county in which I live, I requested that one of my notary stamps reflect the county name in the "Acting In _________ County" section. I'm aware that if I conduct a closing in another county that I have to fill in the correct county. However, I was told by someone at NNA that it was "illegal" to do so. Is this correct? I can't imagine why it would make a difference if it is pre-printed or I write it in.

|RI - Supreme Court Committee report on UPL in closing|
|By Linda_in_IN on 6/21/18 7:08am |
This is a committee report from the Rhode Island Supreme Court Unlicensed Practice of Law Committee to the Supreme Court. It involves a closing, title services, title insurance, and settlement services provided by South Coast Title, Attorney Anthony Senerchia (SouthCoast Title’s attorney-shareholder) and Attorney John T. Sheehan III (an attorney employed by SouthCoast Title).
Interesting read so far. Involves a lot of remarks as to what services were/are on SouthCoast Titls's webiste and what was done at the closing, and what fees were listed on the final settlement statement. Ultimately, it resulted in a solid handslap for SouthCoast rather than civil or criminal charges, and a recommendation that the services outlined in the report (title exam and conducting a closing) constitute practice of law and can only be performed by a licensed attorney or law firm. Sorry, but the actual verbiage was too long to cut and paste here.
But consider these tidbits:
"At the closing on December 2, 2016—which Attorney Senerchia was prepared to conduct himself—it became known that Carmino Cellucci was, in fact, deceased. Tr. Vol. I, 69. The closing was stopped and Attorney Senerchia advised Ronald, the seller, that he should obtain counsel in order to open a probate matter to address Carmino’s interest in the property. Tr. Vol. I, 70."
The facts of the particular transaction at 60 Pine Hill Road in Johnston are cataloged above. It is enough to state here that during that transaction, Attorney Senerchia acted as title insurance agent, and he also performed the title search, the title examination, and the closing. SouthCoast Title acted as settlement agent. For Attorney Senerchia’s title search and examination, SouthCoast Title was paid $275.00, and for SouthCoast Title’s settlement services, SouthCoast Title was paid $550.00. As analyzed above, the Committee finds that the performance of title examinations and closings constitute the practice of law"
|Accepting Bitcoin Payments|
|By ABC Legal Docs, LLC - Jerry Lucas on 6/20/18 10:55pm |
After doing some reading and research, I updated my website to include payment by Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Dash cryptocurrencies.
For a WordPress website, there are several free software plugins available to add Bitcoin capability. I picked the most popular plugin, GoUrl Bitcoin Payment Gateway. It can be used to pay for a product or service, paid membership, paid course, Pay-Per-View restricted web pages, and Pay-Per-Download, such as an ebook or PDF file. There is no monthly fee. They charge a 1.5% transaction fee.
My customers can already pay online using PayPal or a credit card.
A growing number of small and large businesses now accept payment by Bitcoin. Some offer discounts to attract new and repeat customers. I also added a free business listing on http://coinmap.org
There are only a few businesses in my area that accept Bitcoin. But there is a growing public interest and an active Bitcoin and blockchain technology community with regular networking and educational meetings. Check Meetup.com for meetings in your area.
You can accept Bitcoin by installing a free Bitcoin wallet app on your smartphone. Read and follow security instructions carefully to protect your wallet.
There is a growing network of Bitcoin ATMs and online cryptoexchanges where you can buy or sell Bitcoins.
|Made $700 + today...bonu$ day|

I had a purchase and a HELOC today, a vehicle purchase and two insurance inspections, just photos, physical inspection of Montecito properties near mud flow areas. That was good enough for one day.
I went to Costco to stock up on paper and you know how the guy in the big screen TV area that smiles at you and asks who your provider is, the DirecTV guy? Well, I've been geting pretty fed up with all the outages of DISH, which I've had for eons and DirecTV guy offers me half of what I'm paying for one year, goes up $26 in year two and a $300 GIFT CARD for signing up.
Bada bang, bada boom. I'm in the money as soon as I receive that gift card.
I love gift cards...of course that's a trip to Costco...

The Refinance Index gained 6 percent and the refinancing share of applications grew from 35.6 percent to 36.8 percent.

|FASS having payment issues??|
|By Yoli/CA on 6/19/18 11:00am |
Haven't worked with them since August 2013. Back then, they would only call me for complicated or signings further than an hour's drive from me - and pay handsomely.
Today, received the following email:
"ATTENTION FASS SIGNING AGENTS:
REPORTS OF PARTIAL PAYMENT PROCESSING HAS BEEN TROUBLESHOOTED:
OUR ACCOUNTING TEAM HAS REPORTED THAT ALL PAYMENT INVOICES ARE STAGED TO BE PAID THIS AFTERNOON.
WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. "
So, it appears that not only are their fees ridiculously low but now they're not paying the full fee?!?

They are on SnapDocs and definitely low-balling on fees. Offering $40 for a seller's package. I did one last year for a negotiated fee of $75, and no indication of scan backs being required until order was accepted. This is something I've found that some SS companies are doing, not providing the additional requirement of scan backs until after the confirmation is sent, or even later when the docs are printed. It is an additional service being provided, and requires more time and expense (gas). Certainly not unreasonable to request that the fee be adjusted.
|Annual background check/cert renewal time|
|By Cheryl Elliott on 6/19/18 7:56am |
Yes, another year has passed and I'm getting emails from my vendors to get my updated bcg and certification 60 days prior to the current bgc expiration.
Some people renew right away, meaning they are doing this every 10 months instead of 12 months. As a habitual risk taker, I wait to the last minute. Last year it only took 48 hours to turn around my bgc.
Any one renewed lately, and what turnaround time are you experiencing getting your certification and bgc renewal these days?
