Maverick Signings Has anyone heard anything about a company called Maverick Signings? According to their website, they need notaries to do signings for out of town notarizing when people buy cars and are not in the area. They also want to charge a fee for specific training on notarizing these types of documents. [:I] Patricia Bailey 
Did several of these a few years ago. Things were going fine, including the payments. However, on the last one I did they reduced my fee by 5$. I called them on that and they sent me the 5$, and never called again.

It is possible they are heading for financial trouble as anytime $$ is brought up they are cutting off notaries. The postings here aren't the first I've heard of it. I've had several of my notary friends tell me similar stories. The sad thing is where they used to be quite professional and polite they have turned extremely rude. My advice is if there is potential financial trouble keep an eye out on your outstanding fees and don't let them get behind.

Well I was very plesantly surprised today with Maverick. After a very unplesant exchange with this over late fees - a policy I have that they have always been aware of - and essentially "fired" when finally charging them a late fee, I recieved a check today for the late fee. The explination on the check stub stated "Good Will." Perhaps after 2 weeks of contemplating how they treated me, and realizing that I made my payment polices clear from the start, and even waived a previous late fee, the person who reacted so unkindly/unprofessional had a change of heart and that was their way of attempting to repair the relationship. This would actually be more in character with thier past behaivor than the most recent experience. Or it could simply be that they realized I am the only one in the area who will do thier signings. But I was quite shocked to see the check in today's mail! :)

I was contacted by Maverick last Thursday. Having read the recent reviews I decided I still give them a chance as my past experiences with them have been good. They were offering the same price they did a year ago, however I never received the docs. I made sure to confirm my mailing address with them before the sent the docs via FedEx. Last I heard was that they were waiting to hear back from the dealership on the status of the docs. Even if this signing ends up a no go, its no real inconvenience to me as the there was no edocs, so no wasted printing and the signing time was open, so didn't have to cancel any other signings. And they certainly HAVE NOT blame me for the issues with the docs. EDIT: Of course as soon as I post this the documents arrive. Signing seemed normal for Maverick standards. Only thing that could negatively affect is if Maverick fails to pay me on time which they never have in the past nor do I sense will be the case this time. EDIT 8/21/2012: Payment received, ahead of schedule. Maverick still seems to be on the up and up to me. - Tyler Soares - Notary Public, Loan Signing Agent & Insurance Broker. www.mobilestocktonnotary.com   TGS1985
I have been conducting signings for Maverick for quite some time they are on time with payment, pay a fair fee and the people I am in contact with at Maverick are all very nice to deal with. Signings always seem to go very well, and one maybe two docs to notarize. Happy with them [:)] Go Fer You Mobile Notary - TX  TexasRose
Yes I have heard of this company. They want you to study the book. I never done a signing for them at all I do not remember what I have learned from them because I never done a signing for them. Paula M. Felder  mwaaskew
I am new and mostly I get last minute phone calls. I got a call from them on Fri for a closing on Mon. Check came with in 30 days. No fee or training was discussed with me. Soni Mae  soni.weiss
I love working with PJ at Maverick, he is just a great guy! I have done auto and refi's with them and have never had any issues. The fees are reasonable and prompt. They always answer the phones and reply to emails! ALNOTARY  ALNOTARY
I love Maverick! They know that when I call a local auto purchase signer that I tell them where my DH's Law office is--we are in a Municipal Center with several conference rooms available--and they come to me. If you have not worked for them before, it is a flat fee of $70 betty j. dedman  betty1957
Like many other hiring parties, they, too, are attempting to lower fees. I recently dealt direct with a dealership as it was a win/win for both of us--I was paid $125 and they saved $70. (Do the math!) In the past, Maverick has paid me more than the $70 they are now pushing hard...mostly in the $75 to $150 range. These higher fees are, of course, mileage & travel time related. All I'm saying is: NEGOTIATE! Don't just accept what is offered or we'll soon be seeing $60, $50...how low will YOU go.

ID Question Here is a question? What types of ID do others accept when called to a nursing home? In most case I have found that patients do not have valid photo ID. & I have to turn them down. I am in New Jersey & in this state we cannot use a credible witness unless both the Patient & witness's know the Notary. Your Thoughts? Notary On Wheels, LLC. "Where Excellent Service is Not Only a Commitment, But Also Our Policy"  
To a large degree, what's acceptable ID depends upon your state's laws on the subject. In my state (AR), there is no 'list of acceptable ID', tho' they do 'recommend' current gov-issued photo ID. Bottom line is 'it's up to me as to what I will accept' (and that's verbatim from SOS) so, taking that literally, I have (rarely) accepted a very recently expired DL with other supporting documentation as long as competency is unquestionable. However, because nursing homes contain a segment of the population most at risk for fraud, coercion, unawareness, etc., it behooves us to be VERY careful and thorough. That does mean turning down many, not only for lack of proper ID. When my services are requested in either a nursing home or hospital setting, I make SURE that the caller(who is usually NOT the signer) is made aware that in-date photo ID is required as well as clarity of mind or I cannot notarize, but the travel fee will still be due me. Saves me and them a lot of hassle. For that reason alone, many decline my service. OK with me as I'd rather be safe than sorry. In my state, they do have a unit that will go to them for purposes of obtaining a state ID (non-DL & valid indefinitely)and I do advise callers of that fact. (I'm pretty sure that's a big hassle, too, and probably a long wait, but it is possible.)

He got three calls his first day on 123notary I just got a new client. I gave him a free listing. But, he was so smart I gave him higher placement. He got three calls the very next day. He earned the cert icon with his excellent skills. The moral is that even in this depressed economy, hot shot Notaries can get a lot of business. So, be top notch in your skills and presentation and you might prosper even in these hard times.

Signers showing me their ID on a cellphone Third time in less than a month! During my confirmation call, I tell the signer I will need to see an Original Gov.-issued photo ID...D. License preferred. No problem, they say, but upon arrival, they flash a photo on their cell phone. It really hasn't been a problem as, thus far, they still do have the original with them, but they also seem annoyed that I won't accept what I can only describe as a non-original electronic copy of what I asked for...the original. Anyone else seeing this trend? Would you accept this as proof?

No, I would only accept an original ID. It must be a physical one. The ID's on the cell are great, but is not an original one. I carry a current primer with me. If an issue I would show them the law in the primer. Notary On Wheels, LLC. "Where Excellent Service is Not Only a Commitment, But Also Our Policy"   walthtz
