He Rings, But Doesn’t Want To Bring

The phone rang, and when I answered, a man inquired how much I charged to notarize.  I told him that I can’t quote a fee, as I only notarize documents for clients in the context of their transactions.

“Oh, I see,” he says. “What’s the minimum to hire you?”

I told him my consultation fee, and he asked to make an appointment. After setting it up, he asks, “Do I have to bring the person I want notarized, too?” When I said that was required, he asked if he could just show me a copy of a passport and then I could talk to the person on the phone. When I refused to entertain that, he abruptly canceled the appointment and hung up.

As I put the phone receiver down, I had the fleeting suspicion that this was some sort of a notary (or lawyer) sting. But nobody does that, do they?
