The Office of the Nevada Attorney General has announced that complaints have been filed against three more notaries in the state's ongoing massive robo-signing investigation. Meghan Shaw, Jennifer Lowe and Joseph Noel have all been charged with notarization of the signature of a person not in their presence.
The charges stem from the notaries' alleged involvement in the scheme to file fraudulent documents with the Clark County Recorder's office. The documents, referred to as notices of default, were used to initiate foreclosure on local homeowners. Through an investigation led by the attorney general's office, the notaries charged in this case have confirmed that their job duties included signing another person's name on a document and then notarizing that signature.Â Â
‘These complaints are the result of notary practices which did not conform with legal requirements of our state. These requirements were enacted to ensure the integrity of public documents, and our action today is another step in our attempt to determine those responsible,’ says Chief Deputy Attorney General John Kelleher.
