Just Say No to Notario Fraud


Notario Fraud – It’s Real and it’s a Problem


In Mexico, a “notario publico” is a legal professional, generally an attorney. 

In the U.S., a notary public is not an attorney, instead a notary public is someone appointed by the state government to witness a person’s signature and in some cases, to administer oaths.

And when unscrupulous individuals “set up shop” as notarios and mislead unsuspecting immigrants to think that they are authorized to provide legal services, it causes many problems.

The ABA Commission on Immigration has created a website, www.fightnotariofraud.org, to assist with the problem. And they have developed a factsheet to assist with identification of the issues and resources to contact.
