|I happened to me once, the other notary originally accepted the offer, then backed out. I got the assignment then he changed his mind, moved the appointment up an hour and was just leaving with the signed documents as I arrived. We exchanged some forced polite greetings and I left in a foul mood. I arrived 15 minutes early so I'm sure he was hoping to avoid meeting me as he intentionally moved his signing time to beat me to the signing.|
I vented a LOT to the signing agency and got a full fee and I think the other notary involved got into some trouble, but not sure. The signing agency was is a big national agency and I was doing about 15% of their signing in this part of the state at the time, so my venting probably had some effect.
