When we talk about forgery, usually we are talking about falsely making out a check or some other means of obtaining money by fraud. However, forgery can include falsely signing a will or a deed or some other recorded instrument. It can also mean completing or altering written documents issued by a public office or agency. Whether you are charged with forging a signature on a check or credit card receipt or obtaining government benefits illegally, you will find that forgery is prosecuted with increasing regularity and more aggressively than ever in an age where a person’s identity is itself a valuable and vulnerable commodity.
