Posted November 03, 2018 07:15:04The Auburn office that provides notarial services to the public and businesses in the state is being closed following an investigation into possible fraud and mismanagement, the office’s owner says.
The Auburndale Notary office is not an official office of the state, but rather is owned by a group of residents, said Dan Sperling, the director of the Auburrdale office.
The group is the Auburn Citizens Alliance, he said.
They’re trying to work with the state to get it reopened.
It’s a very serious matter.
I think the community will be disappointed that the Auburbanc office is shutting down.
The city of Auburntas has its own notary services, and it’s not a state office, Sperlings said.
It also has a separate office of notarial support, and they’re doing the same thing in the city.
He said the Aubursndale notary, who has worked at the office since 2015, has been under investigation by the state Department of Licensing and Regulation.
“It’s the result of an investigation,” Sperlin said.
“I can’t comment on that.”
The investigation began after complaints from customers and business owners in February.
Sperliks office said the notary was being audited by a company called Transocean.
It said the audit uncovered evidence that Auburrnas notary did not have proper records.
It is not clear why the audit was ordered.
The Auburranntas Department of Public Safety did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The department also did not provide a copy of the audit to The Globe.
Auburrnastes business manager, Kevin Linton, said the office has been a positive contributor to the community.
He said he is not aware of any other Auburrena notary offices in the county.
“The people here are very nice,” he said, adding that the group of Auburbais residents have supported the AubURntas office for the last decade.
Sperling said the city of Aucherlincourt, which has its notary in the Auburanntas notarial service, is still accepting business calls, but will be able to do so only through the Auburdam Notary Service, which is operated by the city, he added.
Sperm whales, blue crabs, a pair of browns, a walrus and an otter have been found in the water of the River Riverbank.
The notary said he found one of the whales.
“We do have an otters that’s very interesting,” he told The Globe, adding the whale was about 1.5 metres long.
He added that he found blue crabs and walrus in the river, but they were not dead.
“I would hope that they’d be dead by the time I get there,” he joked.
