More Robo-Signers Netted by State Attorney General

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Three more complaints have been filed against robo-signers by the Nevada Attorney General's office, shortly after 8 News NOW's Desert Underwater series examining the state's housing crisis.

Complaints have been lodged against Meghan Shaw, Jennifer Bloecher and Joseph Noel, who have all been charged with notarization of the signature of a person not in their presence. 

"These complaints are the result of notary practices which did not conform with legal requirements of our state. These requirements were enacted to ensure the integrity of public documents and our action today is another step in our attempt to determine those responsible" said Chief Deputy Attorney General John Kelleher.

The charges stem from the notaries' involvement in the scheme to file fraudulent documents with the Clark County Recorder's office. The documents, referred to as Notices of Default (NODs), were used to initiate foreclosure on local homeowners.   Through an investigation led by the Attorney General's office, the notaries charged in this case have confirmed that their job duties included signing another person's name on a document and then notarizing that signature.  

Shaw, Noel and Bloecher are set to make an initial appearance in court at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, December 28 in Justice Court.

Anyone who has information regarding this case should contact the Attorney General's Office at 486-3132
