What’s exciting about being a notary? Well, sometimes notaries can run into some pretty interesting situations.

The signers said they were letting the camel stay in their living room because it was too cold outside! Notaries Strangest Assignments
One more story involving notary Wanda Scheib and Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, Kathleen Kane. Kathleen Kane was convicted of nine counts of perjury, conspiracy and other charges. Part of her conviction was related to the fact that she claimed to have never signed secrecy oaths connected to state grand jury investigations. However, Ms. Scheib had the notary journal entries to refute this claim and turned them over to the prosecutors. Prosecutor Michelle Henry said investigators may never have discovered the signed oaths without Scheib’s help. Way to go Wanda Scheib! Full story here
