A special thanks to Steven Rice, Elite Mobile Notary, who generously offered to share a list of deadbeat companies he’s compiled from visits to various websites and his own experience. Steve is a dual notary public and notary signing agent serving western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. These days especially, no one should do work without getting paid, and these companies apparently are not paying. It’s better to turn down work than to try to collect fees later. Make a list of good and/or bad companies and keep it by your phone for quick reference.

Victoria Rivera phoned in a couple of good reference sites that track the stability of financial institutions. See who’s on these lists: ML-Implode.com and BankImplode.com.

We have not verified these findings other than to spot check a few by phone. None of those we tried to call answered the phone. If anyone would like to add to this list or dispute a company’s inclusion, please call me at 928-445-2564 or send an email to: support@gogetnotary.com.
