Fake Lawyers and Notaries Prey on Immigrants

"Notaries are particularly well positioned to capitalize on confusion among immigrants, especially those from Latin America — the largest Chicago immigrant population — as notaries there have considerably more legal agency than they do in the United States. Victims have mistakenly assumed that a “notario” can represent them legally, advocates say." - Chicago News Cooperative, via New York Times, Oct. 23, 2011.
