Purpose of a Notary Public

About 1 in 15 people are victims of identity fraud every year. This comes to almost 17 million victims annually. The primary goal of a South Carolina Notary Public is to deter such criminal acts and protect the public from fraud and ID theft. Appointed by the S.C. Secretary of State, we serve as an official of integrity and impartial witness to performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.​​
