Note: if you have not started a notary complaint yet - you'd better get cracking. Reporting crimes is part of the foreclosure fraud defense or foreclosure fight. It does not take a rocket scientist to know that if there was fruad - it wasn't done right. FIND OUT, stop sleeping or you will lose your home. Do you think someone is going to show up at the door and fill out the paperwork for you? It doesn't work that way. AS my friend used to say, "You snooze, you lose."

Before robo-signing became widely known in the fall, federal legislation to have courts recognize notarizations made in other states sailed through Congress. That would have made processing the ocean of documents in the national foreclosure crisis much easier for banks and other lenders.

To that end, this month the group put out a white paper, “Why Notarization Is More Relevant and Vital Than Ever.”"
