Ggebbia2, thanks for your verbage, I edited it and faxed it along with my original fax notification of closing, the fax confirmation, the invoice sent a month later and that fax confirmation and your edited verbage to Notary Biz. This is for a signing I did on January 25, 2013. I wonder how long it will take for them to pay me.

Though I appreciate the "forceful" verbiage below, I have diluted it just a bit to be slightly less forceful, more pertinent and therefore usable on all and any invoices.

I have now invoiced your company per your instructions. These fees are due in full within XX days.

As a sworn public official for the State of XXX, I feel obligated to act on non-payment by taking the following actions:

1. Notify other notaries public of the details of non-payment.
2. Notify the Lender/Title Company of your company's default.
3. Register the details of the occurrence with the BBB.
4. File in Small Claims Court.
5. Hire a collection agency.

I like your forceful methodology. But, is it fraud not to pay someone or merely "cheating"?

I recently started a new type of invoice that seems to make the companies look twice at my bill:

I have faxed you and invoiced your company as per your instructions, I therefore must remind you of the following: I am a sworn public official from the State of New York. When a fraud is perpetrated in the course of my official duties, I feel obligated to take the following actions:
a. Notify the Attorney General of the details and circumstances of the occurrence.
b. Notify the Secretary of State of (Your State) to look into the matter of whether the Lender/Title Company should maintain their license to do business in the state. ( Supply the same details to the Secretary of State. )
c. Notify other notaries public of the details of non-payment.
d. Contact the Lender/Title Company
e. Register the details of the occurrence with the BBB.
f. Contact the borrower
The above actions as outlined above will commence on the first day of the following MONTH if our office does not receive payment before that date. Please send payment to:

Oops, meant "prey" instead of "pray". Well, now that I think about it, the deadbeat SS's just might "pray" that the notary they hire doesn't discover their deadbeatness before the signing appointment.

Don't forget if you get paid with a rubber check (NSF), you typically have recourse through your state's Attorney General's office.

Never drive any faster than your guardian angel can fly.

I am not an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida,
and I may not give legal advice or accept fees for legal advice.

Signing companies have no oversight, therefore, the deadbeats continue to operate because they pray on the unsuspecting/uninformed. The only recourse to punish them, is in small claims court - but that's after the fact. If a regulated entity starts operating in a deadbeat manner - they can be MADE to stop the deadbeat behavior by their governing agency, and I'm sure that includes fulfilling their contractual obligations to whomever - notaries included.

I'm not sure if the insurance commissioner regulates if notaries get paid. Most of the companies causing problems to notaries are signing companies, and not title companies.

Excellent tips. Title companies are regulated by the Insurance Commissioner and Escrow companies are regulated by the Commissioner of Corporations, therefore, if a Notary has a problem with either of those entities, they can go straight to those regulatory agencies.

On another forum, I saw a long string of negative comments for a Title company....but I'm wondering why this Title company is able to have that many negative reviews without Notaries having reported them to the Insurance Commissioner?
