Roberta Guthrie-Kowald, Attorney for infamous mortgage redemption scam.

Here's a thought - to publish the truth is not slanderous, or a crime. To publish a lie about someone however is.

Roberta Guthrie Kowald is not an attorney - never has been in the US - has no desire to be one.

AT no time did she ever act as the "attorney" for that company or any company associated with them. That honor goes to a woman knows as Lakisha Morris of Morris Law Solutions of Tacoma WA. (She us currently being investigated for ethical violations)

So...the above comment about the license revocation is correct...a matter of public record.

The crazy stuff below it is incorrect and the writer knows it to be incorrect and wrong and more to the point- that person wrote this merely to attempt to discredit the first writer.

Therefore that, my friends is slanderous.

The fact is...Sapphragette that:

A series of administrative errors were made by an employee of said organization. I caught the errors and brought those to the attention of the person overseeing that department to make the corrections that I flagged on all pages. I know now that those errors were not corrected and were instead sent out. The State mailed me a copy of the paperwork showing the errors.

The link to the ScribD document that you inserted in your posting above is in no way associated with the notary violation and the notary violation is in no way linked to a "mortgage fraud scam" as you say. Seeing that you took the time to look up notary violations you will see that I am not the only notary in the State of Washington that received that same violation. There are at least 50+ notaries listed. You also didn't bother to mention in your posting the other notaries, with the same violation, who also got sanctioned and had also notarized documents for the said organization.

The "non-profit" organization was notified about the paperwork being sent out and that I had received a fine. The organization was to pay the fine. They did not. I opted not to renew my notary license.

Like you, and many others, Sapphragette, I too, was not paid by said "non-profit" organization. However, I have chosen to take a higher path rather than slander innocent people on the internet.

For the record...Ms Bennett seems a bit confused.

Notary license wasn't "Suspended", She wasn't "sanctioned", She wasn't told "Oh there was a clerical error and we're going to have to give you a teensy weensy fine and then we'll fix that right up" - her license was revoked.

You can see that notice from the State of WA here:

http://www.dol.wa.gov/about/disciplinary/disciplinarynotary.html

And it's duly noted on the State of WA licensing site:

License Details:
License Informaton:
Name: BENNETT, RONNAI-KIM
License Type: Notary Public
License Number: 19924
License Status: Revoked
First Issued Date: Nov 19 1999
License Issued: Dec 9 2009
Expiration Date: Nov 30 2013

So just how does a notary get their license revoked in WA State?

Well first they get a sanction for violating one of the RCW standards found here:

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=42.44.080

In short Notaries can get in trouble for things like not making sure someone is who they say they are, for not making sure someone is legally competent to sign a document. Notaries are forbidden from legally notarizing a document for themselves...and a host of other things.

Basically - Notaries get in trouble for not checking that everything is on the up-and-up at the time they slap that notary seal and their signature on a document.

Ms Bennett's above statement is correct - a number of Notaries in WA State been sanctioned and reprimanded his year - but you'll see from the link I provided that only a handful have had their licenses actually revoked.

Now Ms Bennett claims that all this wasn't her fault.

She writes:

" A series of administrative errors were made by an employee of said organization. I caught the errors and brought those to the attention of the person overseeing that department to make the corrections that I flagged on all pages. I know now that those errors were not corrected and were instead sent out"

Which basically means that Ms Bennett admits not only that she went ahead and notarized a document that she knew was incorrect (A violation)...but she then proceeded to notarize a document that she knew was going to be altered AFTER she had already notarized it... (a really big no-no).

Let's ponder this:

Firstly - she had no business notarizing a document that had errors on it in the first place.

Secondly - she had no business notarizing a document on the basis that they were going to alter it after she already claimed it was true when she slapped her stamp on it.

But let's give Ms Bennett the benefit of the doubt - maybe she didn't realize those errors until AFTER she notarized everything (though if she'd followed proper procedures its hard to see how this happened - there just simply should never be errors you find out "after the fact" if you do your job properly).

The thing is: it was still her responsibility. It was her license on the line - her duty of care to fix - not some nameless administrative assistant or even the "person overseeing the department"

A wrongly notarized document with errors in it should have been immediately shredded or destroyed and then new documents drawn up and re-executed - not notarized with errors on it and left on some clerk's desk to be "Accidentally" sent out.

So - Ms Bennett got a fine and a sanction and was mandated to take a class in notary ethics and rules.

Which she did not do. She did not fulfill the requirements from the Dept of Licensing. She did not pay her fine, she did not take her class and her license was revoked.

But apparently that wasn't her fault either (again).

Ms Bennett writes:

"The organization was to pay the fine. They did not. I opted not to renew my notary license."
If I was Ms Bennett and my license was going to be revoked and put out all over the internet as a matter of public discipline records - I'd have been on whoever was supposed to pay my fine for me like a bad rash.

Again - to repeat - her license didn't "Expire", it didn't "lapse" - it was revoked.

If she wanted to let her license lapse she still should have paid her fine, taken her class, cleared up her record and then let her license lapse...

To use an example - a driver's license.

You violate the law and you get a ticket. If you don't pay that ticket and do what the law requires you lose your drivers license. That loss doesn't just go away because you decided you don't want to drive anymore- it stays on your record until you take care of it.

And oddly enough you can't just say "My friend was supposed to pay my ticket so it's not my fault" and expect the court to say "I'm sorry. That means you totally weren't speeding at 200 miles an hour down the freeway when the cop pulled you over. Let's just take care of that nasty ticket right now"

So...let's recap:

1) Ms Bennet had no business notarizing signing a document with errors on it (Which she admits she did)
2) MS Bennett had no business notarizing a document that she knew was going to be altered after she notarized it (which she also admits she did)
3) It doesn't matter if her "agency" was going to her fine or not - it was her responsibility to make sure the fine was paid.
4) She was also told she had to take a class in Notary ethics and rules which she never took. Which, again - was her responsibility.

And the "business" she makes her money on?

A scam mortgage "redemption" company formerly knows as "Federal Trustee Services" now trading as "Mortgage Claim Center Outreach" which has been in trouble with everyone in WA State and the Feds - from the Department of Labor and Industries for unpaid and underpaid wages, to the Attorney General for consumer fraud, to the WA State Bar Association for ethics violations by it's attorney, to the IRS for wage, tax and bankruptcy fraud.

The CEO - one Allen Hennessey AKA Gerald Allen Hennessey, AKA Gerald-Allen Hennessey is a twice-convicted felon and former bank-robber... so yeah MS Bennett.

I call it that a scam.
