Bankruptcy petition preparer was ordered to disgorge all but $100 of the fee charged by her to prepare petition and other filings in no-asset Chapter 7 case. Since a bankruptcy petition preparer's services are limited to typing and transcribing, $300 was not "reasonable" per 11 U.S.C. Section 110 for preparing a routine Chapter 7 filing when typing services generally charge an hourly rate of not more than $35.
