Webcam Notarizations are ILLEGAL in the State of NJ per the New Jersey Notary Association.

(((link redacted)))

This company is preying upon unsuspecting people and consumers who have no clue that this service is illegal and do not know or understand that the fraudulent notarization's have no weight and will not stand up in a court of law.

The law states that there must be PERSONAL APPEARANCE.  That means you have to reach out and be able to physically touch someone.  Though this site and company will give spurious and erroneous information "supporting" the authenticity, it is unequivocally fraudulent in it's claims, as to NJ's statutes in particular.

How this company is allowed to defraud consumers in NJ and other states that prohibit it's purpose, (I know there are other states out there that have addressed this fraudulent act and have mentioned this company by name.  If you are curious if your state is one such state, contact your Secretary of State.) and get away with it is beyond me.

It's inexpensive for a reason...because its fraudulent (in the State of NJ and many other states as well) and is not worth the paper it's stamped on.

I hope this saves SOMEONE the $15 going into Andrew Ellis's and Chris Hawkins' pockets!!!

The below was listed on the New Jersey Notary Association Website regarding Web Cam Notarization's:

New Jersey Notary Association

Attention Notaries Public and Citizens of New Jersey

It has come to our attention that some internet based companies are now offering the convenience of document execution electronically while providing the Notary service before a Notary Public live via webcam. The principle is quite simple: a customer uploads their document, signs it electronically and a Notary Public completes the notarization via internet conference technology.

Technology is evolving while the laws of our state have not.

In all cases which a document is to be notarized, the party requesting the service must personally appear before the Notary Public. Personal appearance is NOT possible via webcam. While it is true that you can see and communicate with the other party, they are not personally before you. They are merely visible via usage of technology. If you are not able to take the pulse of the person before you, they have not personally appeared. The party must be in front of you, in same room at the same time.

The laws of the State of New Jersey need to be brought into the 21st century and amended to specifically address the approval or prohibition of webcam notarization. Until such a time, all citizens and Notaries Public alike are STRONGLY URGED not to take part in these services. 

Ensuring the legitimacy and integrity of your notarized documents by completing them in person is far superior than using internet based conveniences. The time and money spent defending your documents in a court-of-law would quickly remove the convenience from notarization via webcam.

The New Jersey Notary Association is vigorously researching the legitimacy of this service and will be posting regular updates to this page. Pertinent information and opinions will be published as they become available.
