Don't be afraid, you will fail and it's okay, keep plugging away." - David Kressel

David Kressel - Founder/VP at NotaryCam

NotaryCam has completely redefined the notarization process, providing the highest level of security possible, including positive verification as to the originality and integrity of the document to be notarized and absolute assurance the signer and notary are who they say they are. To prevent fraud before it occurs, we visually record the signing session and a personal information questionnaire must be completed by the signer.
