This involves the customer bringing the document to the notary, then the notary must physically make a copyof the document(s) ( using a copier machine etc) of the document, from there the document copy(s) and or attached notary certificate has to be notaized .

This ensures the requestor of the document, the public, and the person sending the copy that it is legitimate, thats another reason why its important for notaries to always get a proper photo ID that is current from the person needing items notarized. Notaries are 3rd party unbiased individuals there to ensure the person(s) are who they say they are and that those parties actually did sign the documents.
