WFG National Title Insurance Company - Simi Valley Has anyone heard of these folks? I'm having trouble getting paid from 1/13/12 and they're ignoring my requests for payment, not responding to emails, putting me on hold and dropping my call. Really unusual kind of activity. **update** I just reached someone and they claim the agent I was contacting left their company, yet emails went through and there's nothing on VM indicating she's left. The person I spoke with on the phone sounded very strange. Sincerely yours, Notary's Life 
I have done quite a few signings for WFG, and they do indeed have some very large packages, but they have always paid very quickly, like within 2 weeks. Their website is a little hard to maneuver on to print the docs, but they also have a team of IT type tech people there to help you navigate. I don't mind taking their signings, especially since they pay so quickly.  Ruth Simons
I agreed to perform a signing for WFG for 10:30am the next day. At 8am I had yet to receive any documents. WFG did not answer any of the 4 phone numbers I called. Nor did they respond to the emails I sent to 3 different people. My last email was that I was going to call the borrower and let them know the signing was cancelled. Moments later (10am) I received a response not to call the borrower that the documents were coming. Then I got an email stating the day would be changed. I called the borrower and basically said to stand by. I requested to be paid via PayPal. I got a call from Mike stating they never pay via PayPal and he would remove me from there list of notaries. I said fine. Be carful here folks. Read the other reviews. Gary Williamson  garyw148
I have noticed that the loan packages are getting very large...so I have begun to notify, particularly WFG whose files average 170 copies...that my minimum fee is increased by another $20.00..As I mentioned before I have had no problems getting paid and have asked each time if the file is larger than 120 pages to add in another $20...but I've had to followup to make sure that it was.....so this week I am sending out notifications to most of the companies I work for to increase my minimum fee to include the $20. Whenever I accept a signing...they will need to include it in the order or I will return the assignment right there and then.........We all have to begin to hold the line on our fees or if you accept less then you only have yourself to blame....Good Luck!  29993
The instructions say you have to include a copy of the Order as first page in the return package (it's their 'invoice'). Then payment is usually within 30 days, max.
If you don't value your time and experience, nobody else will.
  Lee-AR
May not be dealing with them again. Huge packages, lots of work, difficult to get through to anyone and get a response. They pay $125 but if I do anything again its going to be $150.  Dannotary
WFG in Westlake Village, CA is giving me the run around with my fee being received. Completed signing on 9-30-16, it is now 11-29-16. Unacceptable. They claim they are going through a transitional period since Michael Crowder is no longer with them. What has that got to do with A/P getting my money to me?   Joan
I have not received payment since my assignment and invoice to WFG on November 28. Despite numerous emails saying it's in the mail, or will be in the mail, zero. Penny 1-17-17 /Penny Henritze  Penny
I have never had trouble getting paid. Usually , I submit the order back to them ,that serves as invoice. If there is some delay, I CC every one I can find on the invoice and also in the vendor portal , etc to get some traction.Usually this resolves with payment promptly being processed. WFG is also one of the major operators & title insurance underwriter. So I doubt that there is intent in not getting paid. Its mostly that your order fell thru the cracks. Please email again and again, NOT just to one person, But to as many as possible. Depending on whether it was bank of america, lakeview etc, they have different divisions. So addressing the appropriate division and also a CC to closings@wfgls.com will get your payment expedited.  Notary_Narayan
Stopped working with them as I have not been paid for the last two closings and have not gotten any response to requests for payment. It seems impossible to talk to anyone there about payment. Used to do a lot of work with them but I guess things changed in how they conduct business.  overquailified1
This company wants me to sign with them, but I'm leery of any company that has extremely high insurance requirements and wants excessive amounts of personal information. Especially when there is no guarantee of work. I'm passing on this company.  Big John K

LeJeune Notaries Super company. Pays great for their VA's and Ron easy to work with, nice guy. You complete your signing status on line, no hand holding. http://LeJeunenotaries.com Cheers, Kel Kelly Robertson, California Notary Public (951) 317-0125 
Here is Ron's reply when he read my post: From: Ron Raynor [mailto:rraynor@lejeunenotaries.com] Sent: Friday, February 12, 2016 3:05 PM To: LTW@closingnotary.com Subject: RE: RE: PAST DUE Payment "Lauren I got your email about the payment for this loan app and like I told you in the email some time ago this lender pays for loan apps when they close the loan, I donít have any control on when they close the loan our policy is we pay for these all at one time our 30days pay is if you do just a refi then we pay within the 30day, because they have not been able to get this one back on to refi we have invoiced the lender and we are awaiting payment for this service, and as soon as we receive the check we will get payment out to you. If you had of called me vs put negative remarks about me on the form for 123 I could have maybe went ahead and cut you your check but since you decided to do that instead of call me you will have to wait as I am having to wait, sorry." Thanks, Ron Raynor rraynor@lejeunenotaries.com anytime, anywhere we will get a notary there. I finally received a check on March 16, 2016 --- four months after the signing, 90 days past due.   tibertlm
Ron, you are a true jackass. You just sent me a short check after 116 DAYS from the closing I did for you on December 3, 2015. Over sixty days of "the check is in the mail". You only paid me after Lengthy list of phone calls and emails. Your payment has been applied as discussed to late fees and short pay fees. You will have another late fee this week. So you now owe me in NOTARY FEES $75.00. Just like all other companies I do charge deadbeats late fees. You were aware of the short pay fee. Affidavit of Financial Interest is going to be filed with Registrar on Friday. Then Friday March 25th you had the Bad Judgment to email me that you couldn't understand why I didn't have the payment. The check was dated March 24th and mailed March 25th. YOU ARE A DEADBEAT. PAY WHAT YOU OWE ALL OF US. YOU WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS VERY SOON. OF COURSE I'M EXPECTING THE CHECK TO BOUNCE. I'M CALLING THE TITLE COMPANY TO INFORM THEM OF YOUR SHORT PAY. Note to everyone he hasn't paid. Call the title company. They get enough calls they'll stop using him. It's up to us if he stays in business. By the way. Late fees are always the option of the payor. If the payor does not want to pay late fees they pay on time. If they want to take the option of paying late fees they pay late. You made the choice to pay the late fees and short pay fees, NOT ME. LYING JERK

Note about sending deadbeats to collections. You almost never get paid and they don't care about their company credit score. File a small claims in the city that the closing took place. LeJeune will have to hire an attorney to represent them or fly out himself. Much more costly to LeJeune and you have a better chance of collecting. The small claims usually has to be in one of two places, the place the transaction took place, the location of the debtor. Therefore, you can file in the city where the closing took place in most jurisdictions. At any rate. LeJeuen can't ignore it.

OK, sorry to rant. Dumboy Ron just emailed me that the payment wasn't 115 days due because HE doesn't count the first 30 days. So, I guess to Ron, if he pays with in 45 days that would be 45 plus 30. Does this guy have a brain?????? Only deadbeats wait 115 days from the closing date to pay. By the way. His excuse for not paying for applications because his clients don't pay him until the final loan closes. HELLO. His contract with you has nothing to do with his contract with his client. You did the work. You need to be paid within 30 days. Why would you take the loan part of the closing if he didn't pay you for the application signing? No other company pays like this. He has to pay you even if he never gets paid. PERIOD. Let's put this jerk out of business.

FYI for those that Ron is telling he isn't getting paid until the final loan closes. I found out this is absolutely NOT True. He gets paid for the application signings and is sitting on the money because he can, because you/we let him. Just wanted you to know you are being taken for a ride. Don't let Ron tell you this garbage anymore. He is getting paid within 30. He just likes keeping your money. Joannie  joannieh
" His excuse for not paying for applications because his clients don't pay him until the final loan closes. " And what is his policy if the loan never closes at all? I mean, we all know loan approvals are subject to a myriad of contingencies - what if that loan never gets approved? Also, loan approval can take over 60 days...?? IMO his policy is making notaries' pay contingent on the transaction going through - which I believe is illegal as, in this instance, it IS creating a financial interest for the notary. I do not do loan apps any longer - my policy (and note I stated *MY* policy) has always been payment in 30 days. I stopped doing them because they are long, take up too much time and the fee is never commensurate with the work put into them. In the event I were to decide to accept an assignment to do an app signing, my fee is my full refi fee, payable in advance - non-negotiable. Disclaimer: Never worked for this company so no personal experience with them. Just voicing my own feelings on RESPA signings. Linda http://www.columbiacountynotary.webs.com  LindaH

Joannie... best way to handle someone like Ron is simply contacting NC Secretary of State / notary - complaints. I sent them a copy of an email thread I had with him and guess who is going to be sanctioned while they investigate and decide whether to let him be a notary anymore [8D] T.R. Schar.  40384
Since 2012 this guy hasn't changed a bit... Full of lies. just wanted to post so you know it is going on still this late in 2018. Ron is a real winner. My revenge is notify NC SOS notary division for sanctions and his client with a copy of our email thread as evidence of his problems. I have a recording of our conversation since MI is a one party state and He can kiss his seal goodbye. Even better is Theft of Services in MI is a misdemeanor on his record and I get paid with expenses and he gets court costs. Glad I am retired and have time to save all of us and many more from future problems with them. T.R. Schar.  40384
He hasn't changed. Liar and a deadbeat.   JZeiger
He has not paid me either from 2018. DO NOT WORK FOR HIM. k rew  4359

Nations Signature Closures Inc, Lenxa, KS My first experience with this client. I performed a simple walk in recording of documents they sent me. I completed this assignment on 10/3/14 and FedEx'd the invoice with the recorded documents the same day. Five weeks later, with no payment, I called on 11/10/14 seeking an explanation. No response to the message I left. Two days later, 11/12/14 the check arrived. Check was dated 11/6/14. Summary: NSC was very pleasant and professional to work for but slow to pay. I will most likely work for them again if called. 
Injury will follow insult. 90 days after I performed an emergency signing for $150 dollars, they disputed the invoice amount and finally sent a check for $50. Print cost, 60 mile round trip, and arrangements count for nothing with these people. Lie, cheat, and steal works for them, because itís all word of mouth contracting.  Peter Newell
I've done four jobs for them in 2019, always got paid in a reasonable amount of time.  Big John K

Print legal and letter Acrobat works well in the PC world to Choose paper source by PDF page size so one can print a file with paper of both sizes. It doesn't work in the Mac world. Is there any software that does that in the Mac world? What do you do? mbuchwald
