Questioned Document Examination (Chapter 1)

Question: When Forgery will be considered as Crime?

Answer: Forgery requires duplicity. It is not consider as a crime until it’s done with the intent to deceive, theft or attempt to commit fraud. Forgery is not a crime and couldn’t be charged unless doesn’t have the deception and larceny. For example arts objects can be imitated or replicated which is not a crime unless someone tried to sell or presented the copies as originals. In this type of cases the replicas or copies would become illegal forgeries. Making of the fake and fraudulent document is also part of forgery. For example, a photograph of person’s signature can artificially place on a document without their consent.
