Case Study ­ Identification

Kevin Costner came into a local bank to have his signature notarized on a contract between him and his agent. Julia, the notary and a faithful fan of Kevin Costner, was star-struck upon meeting him.

Kevin apologized when he explained that he accidentally left his wallet containing his identification in his dressing room on the set.

Julia decided that she could state that she personally knew Kevin, since she had seen all his movies, and she checked “personally known” in the notarial certificate.

Julia completed the notarization, got Kevin’s autograph on a scrap of paper, and screamed with excitement after Kevin left.

Should Julia have notarized Kevin’s signature without requiring identification?

NO !

Now, for the real story …

Kevin Costner disagreed with his agent on the agent’s proposed fee on the new contract they were negotiating, and Kevin refused to sign the contract.

The agent forged Kevin’s signature on the contract and hired a “look-alike” to present the document for notarization.

Poor Kevin is now in court fighting with his agent and Julia has been subpoenaed to testify. Julia is scared to death, embarrassed at her error, and now knows that her Kevin Costner autograph is a fake!

Be careful when you state that you “personally know” someone. This story is purely fictional, but could actually happen to you if you aren’t careful. Our apologies to Mr. Costner and his agent.

"Personally known" means that your acquaintance of and association with the individual establishes that person’s identity with reasonable certainty.
