Is this document genuine?

IsThisGenuine.co.uk helps combat fraud and goes the extra mile with document security

Unfortunately Notaries Public are often the target of identity theft as a notarised document adds gravitas and authenticity to a transaction making forging a notary’s signature or stamp an attractive proposition to fraudsters. To make documents harder to forge and easier for the recipients to ensure that the document is genuine; we at Guthrie Preuveneers attach an IsThisGenuine stamp on all our documents. Each stamp is unique; each IsThisGenuine stamp has a serial number enabling us to check against our records if the document is what it purports to be.

Simple, fast, low-cost way to help prevent identity theft, particularly useful to the legal profession.

HOW IT WORKS

IsThisGenuine.co.uk The person or company issuing an important document upon which people rely to be truthful adds a unique machine-readable code to the document. The recipient of the document scans the code with a smart phone and is presented with a web page, completes the form and clicks SEND. An email is sent to the publisher who emails back to confirm or deny that the document was issued by them. It really is that simple! 

As Notaries Public – unfortunately Notaries are often the target of identity theft – we at Guthrie Preuveneers use this on all our documents. A notarised document adds gravitas and authenticity to a transaction and that makes forging a notary’s signature or stamp an attractive proposition to fraudsters.
