Woman’s Conviction For Forging Notary’s Stamp, Signature Upheld By Wyoming Supreme Court

November 9, 2021 By Jim Angell, Cowboy State Daily

... According to the ruling, ... [the woman] asked a family friend to fax some documents from the Rawlins public library.

The friend instead took the documents to the Sinclair town hall, which also offered fax services. When the town’s clerk, a notary, looked at the documents to fax them, she noticed the documents were marked with her notary stamp and her signature was on them, even though she had not notarized them.

The documents were an application for a medical hardship withdrawal from [a] savings plan. The documents required notarization of [two] signatures.

An investigation revealed [the woman] had forged such applications eight times between 2015 and 2019, signing the notary’s name and copying her notary stamp onto the documents.
