Award-Winning County Clerk Says Notaries Help Her Fight Fraud

TEXAS  Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoirs ID theft-prevention efforts earned her recognition as Americas Public Official of the Year for 2009  and she says she learned a lot about stopping fraud from local Notaries.

DeBeauvoir was honored by the National Association of County Recorders, Election Officials and Clerks for her high ethical standards and work protecting vulnerable private data like Social Security numbers on documents recorded online. DeBeauvoir said Notaries have shared many fraud and forgery-detection tips with her that were helpful to her and her staff.

Theyre excellent people, DeBeauvoir said of local Notaries. The Notaries we deal with are so well trained. They taught us a lot and we owe thanks to them.
