As a Notary Public for the State of South Carolina (and have been since 1965, except 3 years living in GA and being a Notary there), I would NEVER notarize a document in which I did not actually see the person actually signing same. Or, in the case of an Acknowledgement, the person MUST appear before me and acknowledge that they signed the document. I make a relative amount of money as a Notary, from performing weddings, etc. and would never give that up for some nitwit of an employer telling to sign something fraudulently.

In the past, I have told people to take a flying leap when they asked.
