MyNotary Document Tracking System

The system in England and Wales for Notarisation, Apostille and Legalisation is unique and highly respected across the world - the stamp of an English or Welsh notary adds authority and importance to a document. 

It is because of this that a fraudster may create a fake document containing the signature of a genuine notary.

Why are forged / counterfeit documents used?

This can make the English or Welsh notary a victim of identity theft – fraudsters may pass off a notarised document as genuine when in fact the whole documents is a fake – possibly part of a scam transaction or used to deceive someone relying on the contents of the document being true.

 

The MyNotary Network provides a route to guide the recipient of a notarised document back to the notary whose signature and seal the documents bears

Notaries may add a unique coded stamp with a tracking or Protocol number to each document genuinely notarised by them.

 

It is of course impossible to totally prevent fraud – the best we can hope for is to ensure MyNotary notaries are not easy targets
